Tell Secretary of State Kerry: Do Not Allow Disposal of Syria's Chemical Weapon Stocks at Sea - SIGN PLEASE !

Environment  (tags: destruction, ecosystems, oceans, pollution, water, MARINE LIFE, chemicals, toxics )

- 2061 days ago -
The United States is proposing to dispose of Syrian chemical weapons at sea. Doing so would put already vulnerable marine ecosystems at further harm. We must not allow this plan to go through and urge Secretary Kerry to consider other alternatives.

Signed and noted thank you Angelika. This has been done before with very bad results. Don't our leaders realize this and do their homework and research before they say they will do something. The man is a dickhead.

While the DOS surely has great achievements on other sectors it appears where ever they are responsible for environmental matters, they FAIL or or too hesitant.

Happy to support, thank you for posting. Surely it is well beyond time that we stopped looking at the seas on our planet as somewhere that we can dump and forget anything that we don't like. Man created these awful weapons, it is mans' responsibility to dispose of them properly, not by the cheapest method available.

Singed of course.

What a sick idea! Don't they realize that Mediterranean is a closed, and thus very vulnerable, sea? And it is overcrowded, too polluted and exploited to the bone already. Insane, dumb, shortsighted, stupid ... , but when the first damage analysis become public, those wise politicians will be out of the office, sharing their wisdom with equally wise audience, happily charging a very modest $200.000 fee per 20-minute speech.

No! I will not sign this erroneous piece of politicking. First off the Sea Platform is not the brain child of either Secretary Kerry or the USA, the solution to the problem that no one wants the weapons, that must go destroyed in their backyard, originates with the OPCW. The OPCW, Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, is the implementation arm of the CWC, Chemical Weapons Convention, the International Treaty of 1997. The facts are that the Sea Platform is no more dangerous to the environment than any of the other land based methods. Actually it is better as to date No Nation is willing to have them destroyed within their borders or their controlled marine space.

“The United States has offered to contribute destruction technology, full operational support and financing to neutralize Syria's priority chemicals,” announced the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical weapons (OPCW) in a statement issued on Saturday.

so, now we are learning more and it looks not as outrageously insane as it did at first glance.. pls read

After what I've heard today I must respect Lloyd's point and he may be right. In fact they will use a sophisticated method, hydrolysis, to make the chemicals innoxious, delute them with water before deposing.
The Sarin nerve gas will be burnt later.
