Add some info about this item

"The global shipping industry is facing calls to follow the example of the car industry and cut its carbon emissions.

The International Maritime Organisation's environment committee is meeting in London this week to try to agree a global plan for reducing emissions levels.

Container ships use fuel that has 3,500 times more sulphur than car diesel."
