Environmental Disaster Looms
Cleanup along Lebanon‘s coast can’t begin until fighting ends
by Bassem Mroue
BEIRUT — Endangered turtles die shortly after hatching from their eggs.
Fish float dead off the coast. Flaming oil sends waves of black smoke toward the city.
In this country of Mediterranean beaches and snow-capped mountains, Israeli bombing that caused an oil spill has created an environmental disaster.
And cleanup can’t start until the fighting stops, the United Nations said.
Pools of oil disfigure a beach in the bay of Byblos, 42 kms north of Beirut.
Lebanon’s greens launched an international appeal for help to combat an environmental crisis caused by a huge oil spill south of Beirut, more than two weeks into an Israeli air war.
World attention has focused on the hundreds of people who have died in the three-week-old conflict between Israel and Hezbollah.
The environmental damage has attracted little attention but experts warn the long-term effects could be devastating.
Some 110,000 barrels of oil poured into the Mediterranean two weeks ago after Israeli warplanes hit a coastal power plant.
One tank is still burning, sending clouds of thick black smoke across Lebanon.
Israel and environmentalism: here.
Iraq: very big anti war demonstration.
Cluster bombs in Lebanon: here.
Sea fishing in Lebanon: here.
German troops to Lebanon and Green party: here.
