Aint nobody in government really given a fk about burning fossil fuels and pollution...
1 of these container ships generates more pollution/emissions than every single car that is driven on US highways, combined. 15 of these ships generates more pollution that every single car on the planet, combined.
Centralized power generation (power plants) generate more pollution (total pollution, not just BS CO2 emissions) than all cars in the US, yet the EPA imposes more regulation on the mundanes than it does on power plants. In fact, until 2009 there was zero mercury emissions regulation on US power plants... I dont have an exact count on power plants, but I'm guessing there is less than 20,000 in the US - seems like an easy target for a tyrant. Too bad those lobbyists probably get in the way.
