On December 2nd, 1984, near densely-crowded neighborhoods of Bhopal, India, a pesticide factory owned by Union Carbide (now Dow Chemical Company) leaked tons of poison gas into the air. With the factory’s warning system turned off and other safety systems broken, the community was not alerted in any way except by the toxic clouds that reached them in their homes and on the streets.
