I guess because my dad was a captain and I spent a lot of time around ships over 40 years ago, I've become interested in the 'recycling' of old ships. The 3rd world does much of this heavy lifting using a minimum of resources. I wanted to upload a kmz or kml file but apparently it is not allowed on this site. Go to Google Earth and look up these places. You'll see beaches littered with old ships. No EPA or OSHA here.
Alang India, Aliga Turkey, Chittagong Bangladesh & Gadani Pakistan.
They run the ships up on the beach at full speed then cut them apart with torches. Some good youtube videos on the subject too.http://youtu.be/mRJYgNc_TNchttp://youtu.be/Ein5dj-Dc-w
Hey Richard, how about lifting the restriction of sharing kmz or kml files?
