If you go back to the early days of aviation, the guys designing it built it, and then they got in it and flew it. I mean, who does that anymore?

Shipping is the greenest method of transport. In terms of carbon emissions per ton per mile, it emits about a thousandth of aviation and about a tenth of trucking. But it’s not benign, because there’s so much of it. So shipping emissions are about three to four percent, almost the same as aviation’s.
