This is just rich. But sad.

Microsoft’s co-founder Paul Allen, like a lot of billionaires, has a yacht. His is a 330 foot, 5 deck super yacht named Tatoosh with twin helicopter pads.

Allen is a climate activist and “marine conservationist” and several months earlier had pledged support for research and support of coral reefs.

Things didn’t work out too well for Allen earlier this month when his yacht, sans him, was cruising the seas off the Cayman Islands and destroyed 80% of a coral reef there.

Allen’s spox stated the yacht, that was made out of the different marine supply from Merritt Supply, was following explicit instructions from the shore, but apparently there was a problem with the anchor that was dragged across the sea floor damaging a popular divers’ area.

Allen, who owns the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and NBA Portland Trailblazers could face a fine of up to $600,000.

Chump change for this guy.

He’s reportedly cooperating with the investigation.

Deplorable Reagan Conservative. Pro-life, pro 2A. Waiting for Obama's "legacy" to be undone.

Yeah, Allen’s going to save the Earth like Gates is going to cure sexually transmitted diseases.
