Article reflects tour critics' doubts

Posted: Monday, July 24, 2000

Nick Jans' article in USA TODAY (July 18) ``Cruise Ships Tout Pristine Environment, Yet Trash Alaska'' reflects the feelings and observations of many residents of the capital city.

His description of the cruise lines' ``cynical behavior, if not outright hypocrisy of the foulest sort'' may explain why the turnout for the environmental ``show'' two weeks ago was not well attended.

It is clear to many of us that a lot more needs to be done to turn this around.
