The hand of benevolence descending from the sky depicted in this advert has indeed helped developing nations expand their food production x-fold. Technology is a double-edged sword - what cuts as a tool can also kill. Yes, science has to pay for it's mistakes. The true villain in this tragedy is the corrupt government that sets environmental standards so low and likewise values the lives of it's people to the same level as to permit the misapplication of these miracle pesticides and herbicides to harm both.


Is the liquid in the vial supposed to look like blood?


Fuck Union Carbide. My Dad worked at the plant in WV for years and now suffers from asbestosis. He is now 80 years old, completely bed bound, requires oxygen 24 hours a day, and lives with me in my home where my husband and I take care of him. So while Union Carbide was "building a better India" (so the fuckers could take our jobs) in West Virginia thousands of men sacrificed their health. Way to go UC.
