Hawaii ocean in danger
(picture is an arial view of the molasses defusing)
•the harbor can't retaliate against the molasses defusing.
•The spill that dumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of molasses into Honolulu Harbor.
•The thick brown goop displaces oxygen-rich water that fish and corals need to breathe.
•direct contact with molasses can clog a fish's gills.
•the molasses is causing bacteria to take up all of the air bubbles that are in the water.
some pictures of the damage
•smother-to extinguish. "I smothered the fire with water."
•fragile-Easily broken. "the cup is very fragile."
questions I have
