When Eco Tourism Becomes the Enemy November 24, 2007

This picture, from the New York Times (see the article on the NY Times site by clicking here), just makes me wonder if all the eco-tourists now trampling through the rain forests and taking their cruise ships down to the antarctic aren’t helping to create the havoc many of them claim to be fighting. Maybe, instead of feeding the oceans more pools of oil as the result of a sinking ship, they should spend their money on the causes of global warming.

Those of us living in the Bay Area already know too well about how an accident from one ship can cause catastrophic damage to the environment.

This doesn’t look like eco-tourism to me. It looks like eco-pollution.
