Senator seeks $15M for tsunami debris
HONOLULU (AP) — An Alaska senator wants $15 million for tsunami debris cleanup on the West Coast included in a federal disaster relief package for states affected by Superstorm Sandy. Sen. Mark Begich said it's embarrassing that the government of Japan has put more funding toward the debris cleanup than the U.S. government has.

Then I heard about the two 764-foot, dual-fuel megaships being built for Seattle-based TOTE. When they go into service in 2015 and 2016, the hybrid ships will be the most environmentally friendly container ships in the world, the company said in its announcement last week. Emissions of particulate matter will be reduced by 99 percent, enabling TOTE to sail through strict....
