“A Cloud Still Hangs Over Bhopal”

December 3, 2009

An op-ed marking the 25th anniversary of Bhopal in today’s NYT:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/03/opinion/03mehta.html

There’s a really fascinating section on thinking about the gas as a kind of sentient organism. I wonder what it says that Mehta imagines (or imagines the people of Bhopal imagining) the gas as a living being that can make choices (like sparing one animal and not others). I’m pretty sure Animal would disapprove.
