Where Ships Go to Die, Workers Risk Everything | National Geographic

In Bangladesh, men desperate for work perform one of the world's most dangerous jobs. They demolish huge ships in grueling conditions, braving disease, pollution, and the threat of being crushed or stabbed by steel sliced from the hulls. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe #NationalGeographic #Ships #Bangladesh About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

i'm surprised that some of these ships are here to get deconstructed some of the these ships look so what new and look like they can be used for many more years.

Bangladesh has nearly tripled its population in the last 50 years. Has anyone asked why? It can't be for the wealth and exciting lifestyle of the little country. Then we have to send them aid and most of our jobs and manufacturing. The population totally destroy the environment, and what could be a lush and beautiful country. Then they increase the population. Where will it end?

I fully understand why a lot of the migrants that immigrate to much wealthier countries appreciate the opportunities to the fullest & take full advantage of all that is provided. Especially education. Coming from these sorts of situations you can really grasp at their determination & willingness to make something of themselves. You really do see their successes. It makes you look at yourself and all the opportunities that you are able to obtain. Also makes you realise that a lot of people take advantage of the lives given to them & makes you hella sad for these people

Bangladesh created positive changes in her Garments sector which is the 2nd largest in the world after china. It is possible because of continues pressure of world media and buyers. But ship breaking industry is in dark side because of govtment's negligence. Few millionaire in Bangladesh control it. They use the cheap Labour of Bangladeah. It polluted the environments very badly and labourers are in very inhumane conditions.

Bangladesh flirts with socialism
Not to play down the horrendous conditions, but I was surprised when they quoted ~ 15 deaths each year... Given the lack of PPE, general safety awareness and hazardous stuff knocking about, 15 is less than I'd have expected... I guess maybe 3 times that number are probably seriously injured or maimed for life.. I wish these men and boys well!

Chewpoo Sen Welfare checks shouldn’t exist. People should pay for themselves, or at least have their voting rights taken away if they are on welfare.

Start sending it back where it was built! Ship manufacturers should have a recycling program. Same problem as sending garbage to developing countries and or luxury cruise ships dumping there waste at night in the middle of the sea that's way we have tons of plastics in the ocean.
Gen News (1 month ago)
Orppranator so why does the manufacturer have no recycling program? It's there product.
Orppranator (1 month ago)
Gen News These ships have been refurbished already for decades. Once there is enough dmg, buying a new one is cheaper. Same with IPhones.
Gen News (1 month ago)
Orppranator RECYCLE refurbished. Would you like to buy IPHONE every time a new one comes out or would you like to buy one IPhone for the rest of your life?......Exactly, just up grade the parts you need and re use 80% of the phone.
Orppranator (1 month ago)
Gen News You don’t understand. The metal of the ship isn’t worth the labor, unless the ship is given away at the end of its life to be cut apart by dirt poor workers with no safety precautions. The only way to avoid this situation in the video is to force the manufacturers (or maybe the poor, Bangladesh taxpayer) to eat the cost, greatly increasing the cost of shipping for _everyone_ on the planet.
Gen News (1 month ago)
Orppranator well it look like its the manufacturers problem. If your product can't be recycle you have a problem. It's the age of protecting the earth and cycling back to humans. Time to build a recyclable parts. Innovate!
