Ships, Sulphur and Climate


The sulphur spread by ships over the oceans has a strong cooling impact on our planet. Ships sulphur emissions have this far masked a major part of the global warming caused by carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

The book has a look on the scientists efforts to quantify the cooling impact of the ships present sulphur emissions, and explains why the withdrawal of the ships particle parasol might - in the present situation - be more destructive than what has this far been acknowledged. The authors take a look at what is now happening at the Arctic Ocean, and why the heating of the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean could be the most serious part of our whole planetary overheating problem.

"It is very important that we halt the thawing of the Arctic before all these scores of organic carbon and methane begin to erupt into the atmosphere, in a much larger scale." Risto Isomäki
