Tentu ramai yang masih tidak mengetahui Tragedi Bhopal,anda bolehlah membacanya di internet anda...(gunakanlah ia dengan sebaik2nya).Entri ini dibuat hanya sebagai pengetahuan dan sebagai langkah mengingati sesama insan...agar kita tidak menjadi mangsa kepentingan sesuatu pihak.
Ia juga sebagai ingatan -ingat sebelum kena,ingatlah lima perkara sebelum lima perkara (kesimpulannya masih kepada ingat sebelum kena,mau didunia dan yang lebih penting di akhirat).Rasanya terkecut juga perut aku bila terpapar berita tentang kilan pemprosessan bahan nuklear di Pahang itu seakan2 akan menjadi realiti.Itukah yang kita akan tinggalkan untuk anak2 kita.Biarpun kes Bhopa ini berbeza, ia akan ada persamaan bila orang bertanya akhirnya.....kenapa ia dibiarkan dibina?
Nak dengar lagu fasal Bhopa Tragedy(musik yang sangat sedih):

Bhopal disaster

Bhopal gas tragedy

On December 3, 1984, a Union Carbide Corporation pesticide plant in Bhopal 

leaked around 32 tons of toxic gases, including methyl isocyanate gas which 

led to the worst industrial disaster to date. The official death toll was initially 

recorded around 5,000. Many figures suggest that 18,000 died within two weeks, 

and it is estimated that around 8,000 have died since then of 

gas-poisoning-related diseases.[16] TheGreenpeace organization cites 

a total casualty figure of 20,000 as its own conservative estimate.[17] 

The Bhopal disaster is often cited as the world's worstindustrial disaster.[16][18][19] 

December 3 is annually observed as the official day of mourning, 

and every year, all government offices in Bhopal remain closed on this day.

Bhopal disaster has 

no parallel in human history

Feature story - December 3, 2002
It all began 18 years ago during the night of 2 December 1984 when 
40 tonnes of lethal gases leaked from Union Carbide Corporation's 
pesticide factory in Bhopal, India. People just did not know what had 
hit them. There was no warning. Before anyone could realize the 
full impact of the disaster an area of about 40 square kilometres, 
with a resident population of over half a million, was engulfed in 
Bhopal victims
dense clouds of poison.
Burial of an unknown child. This unknown child has become the icon of the world's
worst industrial disaster, caused by the US multinational chemical company, Union Carbide.

People woke up coughing, gasping for breath, their eyes burning. 
Many fell dead as they ran. Others succumbed at the hospitals 
where doctors were overwhelmed by the numbers and lacked 
information on the nature of the poisoning. By the third day of 
the disaster, an estimated 8,000 people had died from direct 
exposure to the gases and a further 500,000 were injured. 
Today, the number of deaths stands at 20,000.
