Human's desperation for things they might not even need but results in greater losses. 3 billion was enough for Midghley's 100 generations to come. Tho, he killed hundreds of millions for money

I'm not sure 'Accidental' is an accurate description, considering he made a conscious decision to include lead even if he knew the dangers first hand, just to make money.

This video is factually incorrect. This man was way outdone by Mao Zedong. Mao Zedong at least killed ~55 million people, and his legacy resulted the death of more the a third of the current United States population.

There are some parallels with Alfred Nobel, except that Nobel ended up deeply ashamed for the harm his inventions caused and turned his profit into something for the greater good to pay back at least a bit of his debt to society.

Amazing, such a story of environmental atrocities hidden in plain sight. Why isn't this widely taught in schools to raise awareness that caution is essential in the face of technological innovation? I was baffled that even in the 90s the led norms in the West were still so high...This makes one wonder about the many modern-day technological inventions that are rolled out and that are supposed not to be "harmful" for example because they also "occur in nature", as they said about led.. I have heard that line more often, in different forms for different technologies. Humanity should move with much more caution and respect for human and other life, instead of being motivated by short-term comfort and greed.
