«[U]ltra-fine particles emitted by cruise liners’ engines» make the decks of some cruise ships «more polluted than the world’s worst-affected cities.»

That's interesting. Oceanic noise pollution is of course also consistently underrated in the general population -- it's bloody awful. But I hadn't considered this pollution being *that* bad. The reason for its usage is, depressingly predictably, «because it’s much cheaper than other fuels.»
"more polluted than the world’s worst-affected cities."

Thats pretty insane when yiu think about it.
