UK shipping to face many changes in the future

According to the report “Future of the sea”, the shipping industry is a vital part of the UK economy, as 95% of imports and exports are carried by sea. The UK maritime sector is the largest in Europe, worth an estimated £14.5 billion. Growing population and development will increase the demand for the transport of goods and the drive to mitigate against climate change will put pressure on the shipping industry to lower CO2 emissions.

Climate costs for Asian ports can reach up to US$49 billion

The report considers the climate risk of 53 of the Asia Pacific region’s largest ports and estimates costs for adaptation.

More ice to enter in the North Atlantic Ocean

A recent research shows that more Arctic sea ice is entering the North Atlantic Ocean, increasing the risks for ships which sail in these areas in spring. The ice trapped many ships, even causing some to sink, as it damaged their hulls. The study authors say that warming temperatures cause by climate change are melting more Arctic ice, increasing ice mobility and opening channels that are normally frozen shut.

Major oil companies to pay over climate change

New York made an important step towards protecting the environment, as it sued five major oil companies, demanding ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, Royal Dutch Shell and  ConocoPhillips pay for the cost of protecting the city from the arising threat that the climate change poses.

Arctic saw smallest ever winter sea ice coverage in 2017
