The shipping industry emits as much carbon as all of Germany. That's unacceptable

The nature of maritime shipping (as with international aviation) makes it hard to regulate. Although individual countries have adopted national emissions caps under the Paris agreement, it is hard to know how to count shipping emissions. Much of the pollution is emitted in international territory, and the ships themselves are predominately registered in small nations with limited regulation; Panama, Liberia and the Marshall Islands are the three most common.

Meanwhile, the bulk of shipping is moving among the nations with the largest economies and highest carbon emissions.
