Prestige: La 'hoja de comunicaciones'
AbstractWhen a ship which carries fuel o any contaminant or toxic material gets into average, the first thing to do is taking it to harbour, where the flow can be controlled. If not possible, then take it to the coast, so that it sinks to the lowest deepness as possible and safe from streams dragging the charge to broad surfaces. In the XVI century this was already known, so there were qualified divers to rescue the charge until 20 or 30 meters, preferably less. That should be known, anyway, by anyone who has lived near the sea, in a time not having television, when we felt curious about anything and were making questions (still I do). Governing people are the only ones seeming to ignore, for they have so much avidity of authority that leads them to oppose even the right people to subdue them.
