It has been weeks now and the tanker that sunk near Guimaras island is still under the bottom of the sea. Cleaning up is just a short term solution and it is a very slow process while the poor people are losing their livelihood and their health. Until now we have not seen any salvage ship at the site. I thought a lot of countries have been contacted and have offered their help? What are they waiting for ?
If the slow response to this problem continues, the possibility of this oil spill spreading to other islands is a major concern and it is not a pretty picture.
