What's amazing here is on the one hand, these activists tend to be the same ones who scream bloody murder whenever a ship is sent to Pakistan or India to be broken up but when somebody at least tries to do it at home in what might be taken as an attempt at being environmentally responsible, the cry is "NOT IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I wish these people would come up with a plan better then that. Don't be the party of "NO" Be the party of the better idea.
