Carbon border adjustments on exports, foreign banks not wanting to loan to us, not a promising looking future for Australia. We must look like an embarrassment on the world stage, just about every other country is moving to do something in a hurry except for us. :(

I know marine engines are pretty hefty, but this line got me - "Fuel consumption is, as you’d expect, pretty hefty, the Wärtsilä lapping up 6283 litres of heavy oil diesel per hour. But, while the pure consumption number seems large, it is in the world of marine engines at least, super-efficient."

Its worth noting at this point that international shipping and aviation falls outside the UNFCCC. Emissions from these dont count towards any country's emission targets.

The International Maritime Organisation is working on shipping emissions. Its slow and behind UNFCCC actions, buts its not nothing...
