Don’t Pollute the Sea, Your Life Depends on Water

Cars, Air Travel, Power Plants, Oil Rigs, Coalmines, War, Military Hardware, Large-Scale Human Movement, Tourism, Trade Shows, Global Tournaments, Oil Spills, Plastic Garbage, GHG  …  and Cruise Ships Would Probably Top Her List of Loathsome Activities by Humans

Three giant 8.5-meter (26ft) high waves bashed against a cruise ship in the Mediterranean, as if trying to rip it apart, killing two people and injuring  six others.

The Cypriot-owned Louis Majesty was sailing off the north-east coast of Spain when the “abnormally high” waves attacked, breaking ship windows,  shipowners were reported as saying.

“A wave broke the glass in the area of the saloon and water was taken on board,” a spokesman for the Spanish coast guard confirmed.

The dead weer identified as a German and an Italian male, both in their fifties.  There were 1,350 passengers and 580 crew onboard.

The Louis Majesty was on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise headed toward Genoa, Italy, but has since returned to Barcelona, Spain.

“Louis Cruises extends its sincere condolences to the families of the two victims and its full support to the injured passengers while expressing its deep sorrow for the incident,” a company spokesman said.

Winds of more than 100km per hour (60 mph) in the area may have been responsible for the incident a French Navy official was reported as saying.

Do you feel as if nature has put you on notice?
