This audio segment from PRI's The World Science Podcast includes first-hand recollections about the December 3rd, 1984, poisonous methyl isocyanate gas leak at the Union Carbide pesticide factory in Bhopal, India. As many as 8,000 people are estimated to have died, thousands more have died since then, and still others remain sick. The factory where the accident occurred was shut down, but the ongoing toxic legacy is a topic of great debate.
The World Science Podcast is a weekly production of The World.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
