Vivere - to live. It is also the name of an ostentatious yacht owned by Philadelphia Energy Solutions CEO Philip Rinaldi.
Along with other chemical and energy companies Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) proposes “to establish Philadelphia as the East Coast natural gas Hub in order to stimulate additional regional growth of manufacturing businesses that can benefit from this resource.”
PES is responsible for nearly 70 percent of Philadelphia’s toxic air release and has a terrible record with the US EPA.
Expanding their operations and making Philadelphia a petrochemical manufacturing import/export hub is not a good deal for the citizens of Philadelphia. The companies involved belong to an opportunistic religion where not making maximum profit is the greatest sin. They have mastered the art of externalizing costs to the poorest and least represented.
In designing his yacht Mr. Rinaldi reveals his narcissum: "A mega yacht not only represents your tastes, but is also, and most of all, a way to express yourself, to show who you have become over the course of your life. . . I wanted the vessel to reflect my personality as far as possible; I wanted it to be perfect, a precise reconstruction of the image I had in mind: or even better...."
Strip bare your ego
And be sincere
Your boat is a tanker
Her name, VIVERE.
