The shipping industry is one of the most polluting yet unregulated industries in the world.
Ships often burn the dirtiest of all fuels – heavy fuel oil (HFO). Its use is particularly dangerous in the Arctic. Not only would a spill have disastrous consequences for the ecosystem and the local communities that depend on it, emissions of black carbon from HFO combustion also accelerate Greenland and Arctic sea ice melt.
In her documentary Sea Blind Bernice Notenboom takes us on a trip to the Arctic, to meetings with shipping insiders, journalists, environmentalists and world-renowned climate scientists. The movie is a powerful illustration of what increased shipping and heavy fuel oil could mean for both the Arctic ecosystem and climate change.
Following the screening the Clean Arctic Alliance will introduce the Arctic Commitment, an initiative calling for a phase-out of heavy fuel oil from Arctic shipping, before holding a moderated panel discussion with the filmmaker and polar explorer Bernice Notenboom.
