Thanks for resurrecting this and updating it. I haven't had anything new to add so...I haven't. Dumping the NOX/SOX directly into seawater is downright diabolical! Hopefully some or all of that will be addressed in these upcoming meetings.
For Engineer60: No offense but if you have not read the whole thread and the source materials please do. This was no treehugger, Luddite concern or discussion. When a mere handful of emitters (this began with 15 ships) can give us more of some of the worst parts of atmospheric pollution than all the cars on Earth, well, Houston we have a problem.... Meanwhile you, me and everyone are paying through the nose for vanishingly small, improvements beyond diminishing returns in cars and other sources. Doing nothing would be the epitome of havng your head up and locked.
