5. A ticking bomb in Kyrgyzstan

In Kyrgyzstan, time is running out to avoid a catastrophe whose scale may be as large as the explosion of the Chernobyl power plant.

Dams that hold radioactive mud at bay could burst if an earthquake hits the area. Then radioactive waste will flood the basin, where 16 million people live.
