Hawaii Molasses Spill Killing Thousands Of Fish

According to NBC News, a massive spill of thick molasses has turned Honolulu Harbor into a watery wasteland, with divers reporting that thousands of fish have been suffocated and environmentalists calling it a disaster.

A pipeline running from storage tanks to ships spewed up to 233,000 gallons of molasses – enough to fill one-third of an Olympic-size pool – into the water on Monday.

The shipping company, Matson Navigation, said the leak was repaired on Tuesday, but there’s nothing it can do to clean up the mess.

The thick substance swamping the harbor and turning the water brown has already wreaked havoc with marine life.
