Greenies love asbestos so much, that they want to keep it on stationkeeping
This is why enviros are absurd: the Clemenceau will be returned to France, but there will still be asbestos on board, and it will still need to be scrapped. Every vessel over the age of 40 has the stuff, as well as virtually every building of the same vintage.
This is why leftist cause-makers are sadistic: they want other people to change their lives to match their irrational fears, and engage in endless attention-seeking behaviour.
In the mean time, a BBC announcer referred to the 26 000 tonne vessel as “26 000 tons of toxic waste”, when the vessel itself isn’t made entirely out of Asbestos, and fails to mention just how common Asbestos removal is.
But to them, we’re the stupid “sheeple” that need saved from own common sense, and we really don’t need to know that. We need to build false outrage about the stuff being worse that the Ebola virus, while someone out there cranks out YET ANOTHER fake alarming report (on a “steady drip” basis that Goebbels would be proud of,) that total collapse due to global warming will come even sooner than we thought.
Sooner or later they’re going to have to start revising historical baseline data to convince people (starting with school children) that it’s already happened – before anybody thought, because it happened sometime last week.
Oh yeah, and don’t forget:
They're after the wrong people. Soy fuels war.
