Check out the US Chemical Safety Board's YouTube channel

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXIkr0SRTnZO4_QpZozvCCA

It's full of investigations of major industrial mishaps. Very informative, extremely well done. If this doesn't piss you off about the GOP, nothing will.

1. Wasn 't the West Fertilizer Company fire and explosion

recently found to be arson?

Yes, regulation would have kept that place far from apartments, schools, and health care facilities but I'm afraid nothing much could have been done about the arson.

3. The TSCA is a joke

All of this stuff is smoke and mirrors. The government puts zero real effort into regulating chemicals.

Here is an example:
