Re: “DHEC not allowed to consider past violations by Kinder Morgan

The Portland,OR, ocean dumping case was a deliberate act planned by Kinder Morgan, not the captain of the ship. What Kinder Morgan and Canpotex are worried about is, that under the Ocean Dumping Act, the criminal penalties can include the confiscation of anything that facilitated the illegal act, including the $200 million terminal and the new ship. There are more serious ramifications here: remember that this ship loaded with tons of potash on deck sailed 110 miles down the Columbia River, past the Coast Guard,observed by the river and bar pilots and tug boat crews, and no one said a word. It was loaded by a major U.S. maritime union, and no one said a word. The Port of Portland, the state department of environmental quality, the EPA and the U.S. Justice Dept. have known about this since the fall of 2003, but this case is just too embarrassing to too many public officials who turned their backs or actively tried to stop the investigation. Also, as a footnote, the "JA Aladdin Dream II", christened in early 2003, was held in May of that year in San Francisco by U.S. marshalls for having Chinese stowaways on board. Its final illegal act in August 2003 was taking on Kinder Morgan's potash to dump at sea, and it hasn't been back to U.S. waters since. So, it's easy for KM to try to blame the ship's captain, but there is no way the potash could have moved from conveyor to ship without the go-ahead from Kinder Morgan.

Re: “DHEC meeting considers Kinder Morgan permit

An article in Willamette Week (8/15/07) tells you how much the government(state, federal, local) belongs to Kinder Morgan. http://wweek.com/editorial/3340/9395/
