The maritime shipping sector emits the same amount of greenhouse gasses as Germany, the world’s sixth-largest emitter by country. And shipping emissions are growing. If nothing is done, ocean shipping could account for 17 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. (source)
But there is apparently good news on the watery horizon.
Dr. Jan Stockbruegger, currently a visiting professor at Brown University, and the Watson Institute’s Climate Solution Lab, recently wrote a paper entitled, "22 Countries Agreed To Establish Green Shipping Routes. That’s Big News," They explain why a new initiative signed by 22 countries may make a difference.
We want to collectively show appreciation for this work by joining in a powerful THUNDERCLAP of thanks to Dr. Stockbruegger on social media. Please remember to tag Dr. Stockbruegger in your post.

Thank you Dr. Jan Stockbruegger for your research on the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its role in addressing climate change. Six Green Shipping Corridors are now set to be established by 2025. We see you! #factsconnectionaction #thecarbonalmanac
