French court fines Carnival Corporation for illegally burning dirty fuel, throwing cruise company’s abysmal environmental record under a spotlight
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — A captain for a Carnival Corporation-owned P&O Cruises ship was fined €100,000 today in France for burning bunker fuel with sulphur levels above the European limit — the first such ruling in France and an indication of a new intent among European countries to tackle pollution from cruise ships.
Activists, tribes tell Carnival: Stop polluting Arctic by burning one of world’s dirtiest fossil fuels
SEATTLE, WA — Climate protectors gathered in Amsterdam and Seattle this weekend to bear witness to the ways human-caused climate change is destroying the Arctic. Participants in two international vigils gathered on Arctic sea ice minimum day to highlight the climate-disrupting emissions of the often-overlooked shipping sector, and called on cruise industry giant Carnival Corporation to end its use of the dirtiest fossil fuel available for marine transportation — heavy fuel oil.
Most of the ships in Carnival Corporation global fleet continue to burn the dirtiest fossil fuel available for marine transportation, heavy fuel oil. We are asking the Chairman of the Board of Carnival Corporation, Micky Arison, to steer this climate polluting company toward a truly sustainable future.
