Marvellous op-ed piece by Splash247 contributor Andrew Craig-Bennett on the emissions debate that is engulfing shipping. With decades of shipping experience, Mr Craig-Bennett is well-placed to argue that the maritime industry really needs to get on board with, and help develop, new emissions regulations. The four countries – Brazil, Argentina, Saudi Arabia and India – currently holding out for no new regulations come in for some coruscating criticism, and he calls for the industry to support the EU’s latest shipping emissions targets, despite obvious industry reluctance. “That does not make it [the EU’s target] wrong; it means those who oppose it should change their minds, because they are wrong. This is not a trivial issue, nor is it one on which our species can indulge in the luxury of compromise.”
