This was a mighty act of nature that serves as a warning of worse weather to come as our atmosphere reacts to our activities here on the ground. That’s where our attention needs to be focused, not on looking for fault. Regardless of whether or not these lawsuits have a right to proceed, this report […]
Nothing could have been done to prevent this disaster. The odds of hitting an iceberg were astronomical. The White Star line had done everything to construct a completely safe unsinkable mode of transportation. Sure, 1502 people died but what more could they have done?
