UK public should pay for clean up of Union Carbide's Bhopal site, says Dow director

An earlier piece (two below) reminds me that when the question of cleaning up the derelict Union Carbide factory was put to Dow director Jacqui Barton, her reply was that the ICJB should conduct an international fundraising campaign (presumably referring to the success of the Bhopal Medical Appeal in the UK) and thus get the money for the clean up, a sum Greenpeace incidentally estimated would run into hundreds of millions of dollars. If this seems unbelievable, read the actual interview report on the website. Meanwhile, the government of Madhya Pradesh continues to ignore an Indian Supreme Court order to arrange a piped supply of clean, safe water to the affected communities.
