In a nut shell, 'ship breaking' is where large numbers of used ships are sent to developing countries like China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Turkey, they are systematically broken down by the cheap labor hired by these ship breakers. Workers are not trained, they are not supplied PPE and they get paid about $1 per day to work 12 hours every day, 7 days a week.

Shipping is one of the fastest growing and most heavily polluting industries. Shipping fuel releases ultra-fine soot particles which can damage health, as well as various global warming pollutants including black carbon from incomplete fuel combustion, nitrogen oxides, nitrous oxide and of course CO2. Despite the recent introduction of mandatory efficiency targets for shipping vessels, these do not come into force until 2015 - and many of the restrictions can be circumvented. Reducing industry’s environmental impact will clearly take a long time. A Swiss-led venture, PlanetSolar, is attempting to change the direction of future maritime travel with Tûranor, the world’s largest solar-powered sea vessel. The 31-metre-long catamaran, which is covered with 600 square metres of photovoltaic...
