BTJ 6/14 - Transport & environment

Total anthropogenic GHG emissions have risen more rapidly over the first 10 years of the 21st century than in the preceding three decades.

Coupled with natural processes, they effected in altering the Earth's energy budget and climate change. Bearing the potential impacts of the latter in mind - increased displacement of people, poverty and coastal flooding as well as food and water shortages - in order to apply the mitigation measures within the 21st century, we will be required to fundamentally depart from business-as-usual.

A threat that transcends borders, by Lena Lorenc

The 6/2014 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Special section features also:

  • There's enough capacity for excellence. Clean air in ports - less pollution, more gain, by Malte Siegert (Head of Environmental Policy at Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union Hamburg):
    Ports are significant wealth generators and are absolutely indispensable for international flows of merchandise. In addition, some European harbours are also top cruise market attractions, located close to centuries-old cosmopolitan cities. There is a “but”, however, as ports are also major sources of air pollution.
  • The upcoming ReVolt. Developing an unmanned, battery-powered and zero-emission short-sea ship, by Hans Anton Tvete (DNV GL’s Senior Researcher Maritime Transport):
    Could present-day technology improve the cost and effectiveness of short-sea shipping while enhancing safety and environmental performance?
    Yes, it could! Taking current technology to the extreme, DNV GL has developed a revolutionary concept for an unmanned, zero-emission short-sea vessel.
