Princess Cruise Lines' Illegal Ocean Dumping Part Of Bigger Problem

Carnival’s Princess Cruise Lines is set to pay a $40 million fine for illegally dumping oil-contaminated waste into the ocean over the course of eight years, and lying to cover it up. It’s the largest criminal penalty ever levied against a cruise line for intentional pollution. But Princess is not the only company doing this.

Here & Now‘s Peter O’Dowd talks to Dave Rosenthal (@daverosenthal1), managing editor of Great Lakes Today, about illegal cruise ship dumping.
