Ocean garbage hinders AirFrance recovery efforts
6 years ago
Earlier this week, investigators said they had located pieces of the plane in the southern Atlantic Ocean, which might have given them clues to the origin of Air France Flight 447’s crash. But on Thursday, Brazilian officials said what they had found was nothing more than run-of-the-mill ocean trash. These events have highlighted the increasing problem of the world’s Oceans being treated as landfills. This is not a new problem. The international community has been slow to act, and there is very little enforcement of the laws currently on the books. http://www.oceanpowermagazine.net/2009/06/11/air-france-disaster-recovery-efforts-hampered-by-ocean-garbage/
