Are the pirates of today a problem for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Actually, some modern pirates have claimed to be environmentalists, and use this mindset to fuel their “work.” The waters around Somalia, where most pirating occurs, are surrounding a country in which 73% of the population lives in poverty. The pirates, who one man claimed were actually calling themselves the “Ocean Salvation Corps,” want to be seen more like Robin Hood than terrorists.

    Companies tend to use Somolia’s coast line for dumping radioactive waste, poisoning the environment and contributing to an already massively unstable country’s issues. Pirates are a result of the intense ecological problems on shore.

    Which isn’t to say they’re all heroes; some have claimed that if they should come upon a ship with American flags, the crew is “as good as dead.”
