Environmental CSI: Pasir Gudang

In 2019, thousands of schoolchildren and residents of Pasir Gudang suffered from chemical poisoning believed to have come from the illegal dumping of toxic waste into Sg. Kim Kim. However, the actual source of the toxic gasses wasn’t as clear cut, as the Academy of Sciences Malaysia task force discovered in their investigation. We discuss the findings of the task force and the lessons learned from the incidents with its Chairman, Prof. Dato’ Dr Wan Ramli Wan Daud.
