Sinking raises questions about Antarctica tourism

Sinking raises questions about Antarctica tourism
http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent ... 925de.html

The sinking of one of the "best-run vessels with the most experienced crew" is a "cautionary tale" about the safety and environmental impact of Antarctic tourism, says David Bederman, counsel for the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition and a law professor at Emory University ... The coalition, an Antarctic watchdog, wants Antarctic tourism to be regulated. While it does not support restrictive regulations that would prevent a ship such as the Explorer from taking tourists to Antarctica, it wants to prohibit activities such as construction of airstrips and hotels.
