The smallest mistake in refloating the crippled Costa Concordia cruise ship will sink it, creating an environmental disaster. Eighteen months ago the massive Costa Concordia cruise liner crashed onto the tiny island of Giglio, 12 miles off Italy’s western coast. Within minutes the 950-foot vessel tipped sideways, tossing passengers into the sea. In the end, 32 people died and 64 were seriously injured.
