Owner of Ikan Bawal heavily fined for failing to switch fuel, California

State regulators fined shipping company $87,750 after one of its vessels failed to switch to a cleaner-burning fuel before docking at the Port of Stockton, reported local media. Bulk carrier Ikan Bawal called Stockton in February this year. State officials said rules about proper fuel usage are intended to reduce diesel pollution, thus reducing cancer rates and premature deaths for residents who live near ports.

Comment:

“…to reduce diesel pollution, thus reducing cancer rates…” – what a pathetic crap! They find traces of ship’s emission in deceased person’s lungs, they record him as a victim of ship pollution. They find traces of smoking in lungs of the same person, he goes to tobacco statistics, too. They find traces of cannabis, he helps the drug statistics. If any other fight with any other evil is going on at the time, say with fast food or GM foods, then, that same person helps those fights, too. An average corpse is a multipurpose object, an asset to several types of statistics, thus helping the fighters with numerous evils to frighten the public, and get more funds. Amen!
