and the complete incompetence of the corporation? They changed names and went back to making huge corporate profits after shedding a tainted name. Corporations have no morals or a soul.

Sadly I'm new to this forum, but you need to do a lot more research. Union Carbide was purchased by Dow Chemical. That's where Bhopal went. Get your facts right before you offer moralistic opinions.

A BRIEF PRAXAIRIAN HISTORY

In the marketing community, a "BRAND" name means everything in business. When the drunkin sailor of the Exxon Valdez ran his oil tanker upon a reef, the vessel (and company) could no longer be recognized as a trustworthy "BRAND".

In effect, the ship was renamed the
"SEA RIVER MEDITERRANEAN".

On the night of December 2 1984 (drunkin sailor)
CEO Warren M. Anderson's chemical plant in Bhopal, India experienced catastrophic plant failure and has killed to date over 15,000 people. On June 30 1992, to distance itself from this tragedy, the gas division was spun off to Union Carbide Corporation's stockholders. The "Ship" was renamed
"PRAXAIR"
