I don't need to see pictures of this one ship anchored in any port!

What I want to know is that it's INDEED IN OPERATION! Helping to skim the GD pollution spreading from the Gulf Mocando leaks!

I don't want to read about just one such ship finally being allowed to deal with the problem--I want know that there is a literal "fleet" of supertankers and superskimmers in the Gulf dealing with surface problem and helping to buy time for effective stoppage!!!

I also want to see the Corexit poisoning STOPPED--so that these types of ships can do their precious functions MORE EFFICIENTLY!!!!!!!!!!

Part of what the public should be SCREAMING ABOUT!
