The story about New York dumping subway cars in the ocean Is the most rediculious idea I have heard in a long time.

At first I thought it may be a good idea. Then the part about asbestous not being removed or at least being painted with a stableizer. What are they thinking???

Yes, in open air we use water and gravity to prevent asbestous from floating around. But if you introduce asbestous fibers to a tank or body of water, there is no gravity. The asbestous is free to float around for the fish to breath and the tides to cary. This is a no brainer.

I am amazed that no one tested this or at least questioned what would happen in a near zero gravity environment.

This is so wrong and must be stoped!
