        Bhopal’s Unlikely Legacy

        When news about the gas leak in Bhopal, India reached the rest of the world, it alerted people to the potential dangers from industrial plants in their own communities. In this audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast we learn that in the United States, the tragedy resulted in major new legislation to protect the American public from toxic substances, while in India, unfortunately, changes have been slower in coming.

        The World Science Podcast is a weekly production of The World.

        This segment was adapted from The World Science Podcast 43. Find out more about The World Science Podcast.
