Protect UK Sea Birds From Hazardous Chemicals ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

We ask that this chemical, polyisobutene, be banned from washing out cargo ships as there is enough evidence to suggest it is killing sea birds, and could harm other marine wildlife as well.

I signed the petition last year and am happy to support it. It should be recognised however that many instances of ships washing out their tanks is already illegal, when they do so it causes huge problems, the difficulty is catching them in the act. Ships simply flush out their tanks and then move on, all that is left is a plume of pollution. Once again this comes down to greed, rich owners of these vessels not wanting to pay the fees for cleaning their tanks in an environmentally supportive way but instead choosing simply to dump their waste in the open sea.

I am sorry for the unnecessary deaths of these sea birds and/or other marine life, which should be protected and not imperilled by human recklessness. Pouring any kind of chemicals into the sea should be outlawed, as a matter of course: It hurts the whole ecosystem, not only the birds, and will turn against people eventually (do the British not bathe in the sea or consume fish/sea veggies?). So please do these poor animal victims and yourselves a favor: Seek out a less harmful (if not harmless) way of washing ships than the one described!
