The Shocking Story of Bai Village
There's a small village in Sichuan province which is living on a time bomb. The chemical fertilizer industry in China – which is so vast it's hard to imagine – has dumped stacks and stacks of phosphogypsum, a nasty chemical waste product of the industry on the village's doorstep.
