I think a lot of people forget that natural oil seepage occurs in many parts of the world. The marine environment seems to cope - it's when large quantities are released in calm sheltered waters or onto beaches that the problems occur

Is the problem with sinking "at sea" (in or near the channel) that all of the containers would then have been a major hazard to navigation. Potentially risking loss of life or other incidents.
