What would a careful researcher ask about a Web site called "Facts about pesticides and health"
published by the Coalition for a Chemical-Free Environment?
I would question the validity of the research supporting these "facts." This web site obviously has a bias.
Pesticides and social health..there can't be a more accurate poison. In 1984, Dec 2 at about 2 am,methyl isocyanate gas began to escape from the American Company Union Carbide's subsidiary in bhopal, India.
The gas escaped for only two hrs but 2500+ people and 10-15,000 livestock died. People lost their body parts and were rendered invalid for life. The plant was manufacturing pesticide. Later on, it was found that various safety measures were not followed with. The CEO, jumped bail and escaped to the US.
Another Auschwitz but all publicity was nipped in the bud by UCC and the Indian Congress Govt, known for its corruption.
You can check any search engine. UCC later put down the blame to intentional sabotage by a disgruntled worker. UCC is no longer in India but it still has a cyber presence in the fact that it owns bhopal dot com the domain.
Here, they whitewash everything. There are hundreds of books on bhopal and business ethics.
Do you feel that juvenile delinquency can effectively be curbed by the threat of corporal punishment? Why or why not?
