Maritime transport is a big polluter

Fine particles, nitrogen and sulphur oxides: the fuel it uses is one of the dirtiest in the world. Here is the impact of maritime transport on the environment.

    Most people couldn't go without them. Most efficient way to move cargo and uses less fuel than moving by land even if possible

    Yeah and those new regulations and new ships won't change shit in reality, as changing a fleet probably costs billions and ships have a very long effective lifetime. As that sounds, pollution from them won't decrease at all by at least 2030 😂

    Maritime transport is with rail transport more eco friendly then road transport, imagine what would happened if all those containers would be transported on trucks, yes, ships produce a lot of pollution, but compare the pollution generated to the tons of cargo transported and you will see the results

    Horrible.. Pollution control on Europe continent is not checked, including from the cars.. That is much more in the UK, still feels like the 1980's, diesel soot coming out of their cars & taxis.. :-(

    I've never understood import/export seems our world would be a better place if everyone just kept to there own parts of the world. We wouldn't be meddling in other countries affairs, each country would make their own stuff, no invasive species, no wars, no weird diseases, no pollution from the big ships as this video suggests.

    One large container ship emits the same pollution as 50,000,000 cars

    They may be the main culprit of increasing level of ocean water not just the melting of polar ice...Archimedes Principle
