  • guys come.

  • I want to show you something.

  • Three hours away from me In that direction there is a ship that broke and spilled oil in the ocean in Mauritius, seven hours away from me.

  • In that direction there is a port in Beirut, then exploded, killing 150 people.

  • In one week, two tragedies happened.

  • There are many reasons for them.

  • But today I want to focus on just one ships.

  • They are more dangerous than we think.

  • Let me explain.

  • In today's world, if I want to own a ship, the process is too easy.

  • First I buy the ship.

  • It can be old, it can be used.

  • Then I start the shell Company.

  • I put the ship under my company on a register The company in a foreign country that I don't live in like Panama.

  • And just like that, my ship is legal.

  • I can sail in the ocean.

  • I can avoid taxes.

  • I can ship anything I want.

  • And if I don't care about safety and my ship crashes and destroys nature, it's not my responsibility.

  • E.

  • It's the company's responsibility that I registered in Panama.

  • So good luck trying to sue me this'll is oversimplified, but the problem is obvious.

  • The shipping industry is unsafe.

  • 20% off.

  • The world's ships are registered in one country, Panama.

  • People choose Panama because it's too easy.

  • There are not many rules.

  • You can be anonymous, you can ship anything, you can do whatever you like.

  • And because there's very little safety regulations, you get disasters.

  • For example, in Mauritius, the ship was heading towards the island for many days, and no one noticed it crashed in the corals and spilled tons of oil in some off the rarest marine life in the world.

  • The ship is owned by a Japanese company, but it's registered in Panama.

  • No one knows yet who is going to pay for the oil spill.

  • So for now, the locals have to clean their own beach.

  • In Beirut, the explosive material was in another ship that was considered unsafe.

  • So the owner left the ship in Beirut, and a few years later the cargo exploded, killing 150 people.

  • Don't get me wrong.

  • I love ships 90% off.

  • Everything that we own was shipped, but this week was a wake up call.

  • If you want to put a ship in the ocean.

  • If you want to carry oil or bombs in our ocean, you should be responsible for it.

  • Not your fake company in Panama or Liberia.

  • You should not avoid taxes, hire cheap labor and use all chips just to save money.

  • Right now, the people off Lebanon are crying on the nature off.

  • Mauritius is dying.

  • Let us make our oceans, ships and ports safe for everybody.

  • See you next week before you go.

  • One last thing.

  • That video you just saw I made using this camera and this microphone.

  • But for the first time ever, I'm ditching my camera and I'm picking up my podcasting equipment because yes, I'm starting a podcast.

  • It's called mass talks.

  • It's free.

  • And it's on Lee on Spotify.

  • And if you liked that video, I think you're gonna love the podcast because I just wanted to make a podcast about things that I would listen to about topics that I wanna listen.

  • Thio.

  • Yes, no stocks is 100% honest and raw and deep and by the way, it's 100% free.

  • So keep your money and give me your ears.

  • Because if you like this video, I think you're gonna love this podcast.
