Because of its core business, Corilla Marine has an inherent passion for the world’s shipping and all related oceanic topics. We are therefore delighted to feature on our website a stunning three-minute programme from Shipmap.org which explains the benefits – and the consequences – of the many thousands of ships that are plying the world’s oceans at any given moment.
The incredible visualisation created for the programme shows the tens of millions of commercial shipping movements in one full year, transporting everything from crude oil and plastic toys to fruit, vegetables and clothing. But with such volumes of shipping comes vast amounts of CO2, the main driver of global warming.
This must-see programme explains that commercial shipping produces more than one million tonnes of CO2 every day… more than the whole of the UK, or Canada, or Brazil… https://www.shipmap.org/
