Presence of US warships in Persian Gulf, source of pollution

Thursday, 26 July 2012

Abdolreza Karbasi, Deputy Head of the Organization for Marine Affairs, said that the aircraft taking off from aircraft carriers consume far more fuel, thus causing pollution in the Persian Gulf.
The US Navy has added another aircraft carrier to its fleet in Bahrain. Karbasi added that dozens of sorties are flown by the American warplanes every day, and they will have adverse consequences for the Persian Gulf environment in the long run.
