    It’s one of those dirty secrets that most cruise lines and transport lines have Liberian or Panamanian “flags” because they don’t require sewage treatment or most of the safety stuff that other nations require.

    Fortunately, American ships have not been allowed to dump their garbage for some decades. That doesn’t stop the Chinese or other nations, though.

    The real problem is bad enough, but some of the claims are ludicrous. Some idiots tried to claim that 20+ year old tires and decades-old plastics were floating around. Three problems with that: 1. Plastic breaks down quickly under the action of sunlight. A major problem on public lands is that the plastic containers of trash people dump come apart in a hurry from UV degradation, meaning you have to clean them up in a hurry. 2. Sulfate and salt action by seawater breaks down plastics and rubber very quickly. 3. Plastics with UV protection are recent. Older stuff breaks down much faster than some of the new consumer plastics. Even with UV protection, it still breaks down, though.

    Fortunately with the new IMO regulations coming into force, nobody is allowed to dump anything anymore. No matter what flag you fly on your ship.

    Aye,return indeed! At long last there is ONE who WILL see to the cleaning up of the Sea…….His Sea. I liked the name Poseidon as well,and thought how odd that it was used to name a doomed ship.

    The ship supposedly wasn’t doomed when it was named. (one of my all-time favorite movies; the original, not the remake.)

    Being a Percy Jackson fan, I prefer the Greek names.

    Looks like it was a bag of worms that Parker & Hart opened.
