This headline caught my eye. In the ocean shipping business we are used to think of ships as big polluters. In fact, here it says that ships account for 25% of all GHG emissions in the EU.
Now here in Chicagoland, we like to barbecue. And last night I attended the Intermodal Association of Chicago monthly dinner, where a significant proportion of the listeners were truckers. We heard that an 18-wheeler with a 2006-2010 clean diesel engine would have to travel 143 miles to generate as much particulates as grilling one hamburger. So I wonder if the Europeans could not get the same results by grilling fewer hamburgers.
