Excesses of the Walton Family Evident on the High Seas.

Wal Mart uses this diesel-powered monster ship to bring goods from China to California. It can carry 15 thousand containers, is longer than a US aircraft carrier and is too big to fit through the Panama canal. Two more are in production. 

It then travels back to China empty. 

It is not known if the amount of greenhouse gases produced in this breathtakingly irresponsible way, has ever been calculated.  It also puts the lie to Wal Mart promises to make maximum use of "local suppliers" in its business.
