Black and White

If only things were straightforward. Black or white. No gray zones.
There is a Canadian organization called "The Pembina Institute" that is concerned with promoting a sustainable and healthy planet. It is even supported financially by the Alberta Government, whose policy is to promote the Tar sands, which promote the opposite of a healthy planet.
People want clean air, but go on using diesel.
Enron want a few new pipelines for the transport of oil, at the same time as Shell leaks two million gallons of oil into the sea off Nigeria.
These are gray zones. where one does one thing, another does the opposite. One says it's safe, the other proves it's not.
Today's pictures illustrate Black and White. No gray zone picture! Sorry!

Oh by the way, there are cruise ships around that have 5,200 aboard; 2,800 crew. Wouldn't they have fun evacuating those if they tipped over!

The Oasis Class of Royal Caribbean has a capacity of 6360 passengers per ship, and that is without crew.
