The World's Worst Industrial Destroyers Win Again
« on: September 28, 2017, 03:12:52 PM »

this is a short compilation establishing several facts, if you do not shake your head in disbelief here, you may never go through a wake up call... sorry

-------------------


The Bhopal disaster, also referred  to as the Bhopal gas tragedy, was a gas leak incident in India,  considered the world's worst industrial disaster....  500,000 people were exposed to methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas and other chemicals. The highly toxic substance made its way into and around the shanty towns located near the plant.[2] Estimates vary on the death toll. The official immediate death toll was 2,259. The government of Madhya Pradesh confirmed a total of 3,787 deaths related to the gas release.[3]  A government affidavit in 2006 stated that the leak caused 558,125  injuries, including 38,478 temporary partial injuries and approximately  3,900 severely and permanently disabling injuries.[4] Others estimate that 8,000 died within two weeks, and another 8,000 or more have since died from gas-related diseases.[5] More at Wikipedia 

 INDEPENDENT.UL| SEP 15 2017 | ‘The UN’s special rapporteur on hazardous substances and wastes has  said that he is “deeply concerned” the merger between Dow Chemical and  DuPont may erase any remaining possibility of the victims of the Bhopal  disaster seeing an “effective remedy”, more than three decades on from  the tragedy. The two chemical giants completed the planned $130bn (£100bn) merger  to form DowDuPont earlier this month, but Tuncak fears that appropriate  justice for those affected by the 1984 deadly gas leak at the Union  Carbide India pesticide plant will now be even more challenging to  achieve. Dow never owned or operated the factory that leaked the highly toxic  methyl isocyanate fog in the early hours of 3 December 1984, but  campaigners and Indian courts have tried to link it to the tragedy  following its 2001 acquisition of Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) – the  US-based majority owner of Union Carbide India (with 50.99 per cent  shares) at the time of the disaster.’ Read more: Bhopal disaster victims may never get compensation following Dow-DuPont merger, fears UN official

WHEN CHEMICALS ARE INVOLVED, RIGHT AND LEFT UNITE?

NATURAL NEWS | July 07, 2016 |  Radioactive waste legally dumped in ocean! Obama administration OK's dumping 76 billion gallons of wastewater  into Gulf of Mexico before quietly approving hundreds of offshore  fracking permits...  Now documents obtained via a lawsuit reveal how the administration  allowed energy companies to dump more than 76 billion gallons of toxic, radioactive fracking wastewater directly into the Gulf of Mexico -- and that's just in 2014. http://www.naturalnews.com/054583_fracking_pollution_toxic_wastewater.html

ECOWATCH.ORG: Stop Dumping Offshore Fracking Waste Into Gulf of Mexico! 
A Trump administration  proposal to continue allowing oil companies to dump unlimited amounts  of offshore fracking chemicals into the Gulf of Mexico violates federal  law and threatens imperiled marine wildlife, the Center for Biological Diversity warned this week.
Corporate atrocities against nature may ultimately destroy human civilization 

 Friday, June 18, 2010 |  .... We must now shift our consciousness to a new era of the protection of life. We must value quality of life,  not imaginary numbers in a bank account, and quality of life is a  complex, interdependent equation that necessarily involves the  sustaining of all the diverse ecosystems that now remain on our planet.  For humans to live sustainably, happily and abundantly, we must stop  destroying nature and start protecting it. We must be its steward, not  its exploiter. And those corporations engaged in the mass destruction or  poisoning of living ecosystems must be courageously arrested as  criminals and prosecuted for their crimes against both the People and  the planet.
