The shipping industry is responsible for the majority of world trade, yet uses an enormous amount of fuel and contributes considerably to worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. Wind-power technology for cargo ships has great potential to cut these emissions

Signed. Who ever would have thought sail boats would be ever used again. Always thought clipper ships were beautiful, but sure wouldn't want to ride or work in one (motion..ugh)

Modern power/sail hybrid ships would take advantage of the best of both technologies and sail at reduced pollution levels compared to engine-only ships due to replacement of part of their fuel use by wind. It's nothing like an old wooden sail ship.

Great idea! Also would be good if they are mandated to stop by the ocean plastic dumps they are sailing by and pick up a load of trash to be recycled:).
