Sunken Oil Tanker Should Have Been 'Bombed' to Minimize Pollution, Experts Say
A Panama-flagged oil tanker, burning for more than a week after a collision off China’s east coast, sank Sunday, raising serious concerns over coastal pollution.
Some experts said the authorities should have bombed or torpedoed the vessel so that it would explode and its fuel would burn out, instead of letting it slowly seep into the ocean floor, thereby minimizing the environmental impact.
