Interesting. Is that a fact though?
It appears as though the graphic is referencing some kind of sulphur oxide (SO) rather than CO2. That, or it is just saying cruisers emit 'more so' without actually specifying what they are emitting.bubbie wrote: ↑Fri Jun 21, 2019 1:41 amInteresting. Is that a fact though?
Just the other day, I was looking into the emissions of cargo tankers. What I found was that their co2 footprint roughly equals to that of Germany’s, or 3% of the world’s emissions.
drymount cruises though. I have been on one about 20 years ago. Doubt I would be on another one any time soon.
I got it !
In this article (a brief interview with one of the researches from a German environmental organization), the guy stated thatThe report comes just days after Carnival agreed to pay a $20m fine and undertake increased monitoring after it was found to still be dumping sewage and plastic waste, leaking gas and dirty water and falsifying records of incidents.
In 2016 the company pleaded guilty to dumping oily waste from its Princess Line ships, and was fined $40m and put on a five-year probation but on Monday it admitted to violating that probation in a Miami court.
There is plenty more to post. The funniest thing though is that “now that the industry is under increasing scrutiny” has been written in pretty much in these exact words in every article I read dating back to before 2010, I believe.It showed that the amount of emissions that passengers breathe on board is more than twenty times higher than on a main road with a lot of pollution.
Based on an estimated total number of about 25.8 million cruise ship passengers in 2017, it can be estimated that the average cruise ship passenger emits 0.82 tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent for their cruise. This is equivalent to a return air trip from London to Tokyo in economy class.
