A Tale of Two Tragedies.

Bhopal Gas Tragedy: 20,000 lives lost because the White American men of Union Carbide thought risking the lives of men of color is just okay. Deemed as the biggest industrial tragedy in history. No justice was ever done.

Chernobyl: 4000 lives lost in a nuclear accident. Those running the plant and those dying belonged to the same nation.

But guess what, these Muricans decided to make a series about Chernobyl and not Bhopal because they were directly responsible for the later.
Also maybe they thought 4000 European lives hold more value than 20,000 lives of Brown Asian people.
