Fossil fuel funded “NGO” @ClearSeasOrg released a dangerous report this month implying scrubbers are safe for our waters.

It’s the most sophisticated greenwashing I’ve seen in a while. Let’s debunk it. 🧵
@Transport_gc #BanScrubbers #OceanPollution #cruiseship
First of all, Clear Seas is funded by Alberta Energy and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), & other industry. They have a vested interest in the shipping industry’s use of high-sulphur fuel oils and scrubbers. /2
This is not a report. It’s shareholder talking points sprinkled with cherry picked facts. /3

"This report exposes the staggering amount of water pollution cruise ship traffic releases into B.C. coastal waters in non-pandemic years. It begs the question: How can we build back better in the future to confidently welcome back cruise ships?" -Anna Barford of @standearth

@PrincessCruises Here comes the reproofs part. Your head office (NOT the ship staff) failed the passengers of the Pacific Princess #cruiseship while we were stranded due to the #COVID19 crisis. Yes, I know you had 18 ships to deal with & some of them had people sick.
@PrincessCruises @PrincessCruises Even so, it was unacceptable customer care to send our ship west from Australia with no certain ports ahead. The lack of communication w/us following that ill-advised move was irresponsible on the part of Princess. We were left in limbo for 18 days.
@PrincessCruises @PrincessCruises When we left Australia, those of us on the ship w/internet access already knew there was no way we would be allowed to visit Sri Lanka. Yet the ship headed there anyway, a 3600-mile journey that took 8 days. Someone should be fired for allowing this.

THREAD: 1/n. I have a self-quarantined central #Ohio client who was on the #CarnivalValor cruise with this man. I believe that our #Columbus community needs to know of her experience with #Carnival and @OHdeptofhealth.

I will be updating this thread as I find out more.
2/ My client is female, between 45-50 years old. Before I continue, people should know that she has been in public places in central #Ohio for days. She found out from a friend this morning who had seen this morning's @ColumbusHealth #COVID19 announcement. Places she's been:
3/ Sunday March 9th: @Costco at #Polaris; #Costco in #PlainCity; #Aldi in #Delaware.

Wed. March 12th, after work: @TommysPizzaOhio but not yet sure which location.

At the beginning of 2020, I went on sabbatical for 4 months. To celebrate my full recovery from cancer, I had planned a bucket-list trip: a round-the-world cruise on a small ship. Talk about bad timing!#coronavirus #cruiseship 1/
Back in January, no one expected a virus in China would explode into #coronapocalypse. My #travelinsurance company helpfully informed me that "fear" of a disease was not a covered reason for cancellation. The #cruiseship line wasn't offering refunds then either. 2/
We departed Los Angeles Jan 20, westbound on the Pacific Princess. There were the usual #cruiseship hiccups: harbor traffic in Rangiroa diverted us to Moorea, Cyclone Uesi kept us from reaching Stewart Island and Milford Sound so we went to Christchurch instead. 3/
