    by ebru-tv

    25 years after a Union Carbide plant leaked toxic chemicals into the air killing at least 10,000 and affecting the health of half a million others, there has been little progress in cleaning up the site and the toxic waste continues to contaminate water supplies. The Union Carbide factory that spewed 40 tons of deadly methyl isocyanate into the air in the dead of night on December 2 1981, the factory is deserted and run down - its windows broken and its metal structures rusted.
