Fewer Cruise Ships Caught Polluting

Fewer cruise ships were caught polluting the air during the 2009 tourist season. Alaska’s Environmental Conservation Department issued violation notices to three ships last summer. That’s down from 10 the previous year. But they were a little more than the zero to two issued the previous six years. Cruise Ship Program Manager Denise Koch says the violations note the density of air emissions.
