gCaptain has a significant editorial that questions the Coast Guard’s plan for the grounded car carrier Golden Ray. This is not in my wheelhouse, but sounds like they have valid reservations about the proposed method of salvage and its possible adverse environmental impact. (OPA-90 is the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.)
“This is OPA 90’s biggest test ever. The question is, will the United States Coast Guard allow OPA-90 to be manipulated by responsible parties? Will they rewind the clock to the days before Exxon Valdez when polluters managed their own environmental disaster recovery efforts?”
Thanks to Lee for bringing this to my attention.
