New Cruise Ship Powered By Dead Fish & Other Organic Waste

Jonah rode a whale and there’s the naughty British naval expression of riding the dolphin. Now Norwegian cruise line Hurtigruten reports it will soon sail the first passenger ship powered by LBG. It’s a liquid fuel made up of organic sources from the sea and other waste products.

We can only hope that when the cruise gets underway, and passengers line the rails to wave farewell to those on shore, they won’t have to hold their noses. Seriously, unlike fuel oil and coal, the LBG ships will sail via emissions-free economy.

The Big Bad Apple residents finished first by far, with Los Angeles a distant second with 19.7 percent. Next in the nasty cities were Washington, DC, Chicago, Boston, Detroit, Buffalo, Baltimore, Philadelphia and San Francisco.  The opinion about NYC isn’t new.

When John Adams visited New York in 1774, he wrote in his diary: “With all the opulence and splendor of this city, there is very little good breeding to be found. “I have not seen one real gentleman, one well-bred man, since I came to town,” he griped, according to the New York Times.
