We need to look at how we power those vehicles that transport our goods as well as ourselves and find ways to make them cleaner.

From an article in the UK Guardian about the environmental impact of shipping.

"One giant container ship can emit almost the same amount of cancer and asthma-causing chemicals as 50m cars, study finds."

Something to think about.

I accept that we need to make someone the bad guy and it seems only right to jump on the recent cruise ship hysteria but, really? Sure, cruise ships are big polluters but what about the tens of thousands of commercial shipping vessels out there, chugging back and forth carrying cheap, imported products that nobody on the face of the planet actually NEEDS but will purchase regardless and toss out a week later?

What are the pollution stats on those ships, hmm. Hybrid?

The cruise ship industry is making enough profit to pay the fines levied against them when they pollute. You'd think they would realize it's cost effective to outfit their ships with waste treatment facilities, they can provide food etc to all those people but they haven't considered what comes next!!
