Thread Name: Songs about the Exxon Valdez disaster (1989)
Subject: RE: Words? Wreck of the Exxon Valdez?
I just read a travel article too that stated that the upside of the Exxon Valdez disaster was that it put that same pristine coastline on the map as far as cruising tourists are concerned, does that mean one disaster begets another, some more far reaching side affects & aftershocks, & that some guides can take you to see spills of oil that still linger along with the cleanup boomtown ghost camps. So I guess that having a silk purse that's made from a sow's ear is still valuable if it drips with crude?????? Do the oil companies still want reduced crew sizes & single walled hulls with a drunk at the helm of both companies & ships????? Barry
