I say this because looking at an early powerhouse America you had the same kind of huge industrial accidents like this explosion. We have evolved into just poisoning giant swaths of land/water like the Gulf of Mexico and the river that is currently full of old gold mining chemicals toxic as all get out. The Budweiser beer bottle plant in my town routinely ejects crap out their stacks that settles back down to the ground as white ash and man you ought to smell that stuff....gross. I would LOL if it was funny.
    I agree with you wholeheartedly. It is journey to 1st world nation. They can learn from the rest who have gone thru.

    Sad and bitter journey!
