Next target...shipping

Forget aviation, the new criminal of the year is the shippnig industry. A report from Intertanko (isn't that a fantastic name?) claims that global shipping emissions are twice that of aviation.
Presumably, however, emissions are lower when directly compared to an identical journey.
Maybe we need a ship-freighted label to accompany our air freighted one.
Incidentally, my mother (like all mothers, a source of great wisdom) yesterday commented on the recent chicken-spillage in Scotland.Why, she rightly queried, were the chickens being transported so far cross country, when presumably there is as much a market for a good roast dinner in their home area? How much of our livestock is trekked across the country unnecessarily, when a good local market/supermarket could easily be found?
