based on what i read, they were dumping the oil waste discreetly, so it was very difficult to trace back to them. The EPA had to use some advanced analysis to trace the drudge back to their ships, the other ports u mentioned may not have the advanced equipment to accomplish this or might be too polluted/crowded to discern where the excess toxics came from.
[quote=“klaxon”]Taiwan’s largest shipping company intentionally befouls U.S. waters and evades pollution controls, and gets nailed, but not a peep from the TT, CP, or TN. Even Xinhua covered this story, as well as local papers in the states:
One question I had after reading this article, is if Evergreen was doing this in Seattle, and didn’t worry or care about the consequences, what are they doing in Keelung (Jilong), or Kaohsiung? Or Manila, Hong Kong, or the other ports they visit?[/quote]
