That post was moved to the Ecocosmology Blog for efficiency reasons.
Meanwhile, A Shadow of Time is emerging to try to govern our future, as more and more of the Earth is buried in Arlington National Dirt Daze.
These constitute more evidence that The Criminally Insane Epoch has really and truly arisen on our planet.
Anyway, here is the post from two years ago:
The most disgusting microcosm of what our species is doing to the earth has recently surfaced.
The Sicilian mob is sinking ships in the Mediterranean Sea.
These are not normal ships that would potentially make a beneficial reef.
No, these are ships that contain deadly radioactive material on board:
Pressure is growing on the Italian government to act over revelations that 30 or more ships with radioactive cargoes, deliberately sunk by the Mafia, may be polluting the Mediterranean.(The Independent). I think we can dispense with the "may be" and get right to the point.
This is a crime against humanity and should be dealt with as such.
There are reports that human skulls may be in the radioactive material so there is a possible murder case involved as well.
Time for a new attitude and for denial to go.
