It was bitter this morning but little or no wind. I decided it was good for large format but a location I had in mind had changed so I went on a road trip looking for suitable vistas in the -4C conditions. I ended up in Felixstowe just as a DFDS vessel left the mouth of the port but further down the quay I noticed tugs fussing about a Maersk vessel. Then the plume of marine diesel fumes disgorged from the funnel and lo, another dose of carbon to fuel the global warming issue.
Marine traffic on that constant circumnavigation of the globe is the biggest contributor to carbon exhausts into the atmosphere. This is another aspect of change that needs to be recorded alongside our developing project. Global marine traffic and cement manufacture. What can we do about it?
