REUTERS/Lucas Jackson/File Photo By Eric Roston (Bloomberg) –As the summer melt season reaches its peak, the largest Arctic ice shelf has jettisoned a piece of ice twice the size of Manhattan. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland reported on Monday that the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream has lost more than 19 square miles (50 square kilometers) for the second year in a row. The giant glacier has now been reduced by 60 square miles in the past two decades. Ice shelves are a barrier that prevent land-based glaciers from sliding into the ocean, where they go on to melt and contributed to rising sea levels. When those structures weaken and disintegrate, as the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream...

The importance of the region has increased further since the outbreak of novel coronavirus. Bangladesh needs to adapt to these emerging circumstances and take integrated measures to utilise the opportunities that lie ahead. These observations were made on Tuesday at a webinar on the growing importance of the Bay of Bengal.

Speaking at the launch of the report United in Science 2020 on September 9, he emphasized that there is “no time to delay” if the world is to slow the trend of the devastating impacts of climate change, and limit temperate...

An Increasingly Crowded Ocean Calls for a New Role for Transnational Corporations Viewpoint by Robert Blasiak* 14 September 2020 STOCKHOLM (IDN) – The MV Wakashio ran aground on a coral reef in Mauritius in late July 2020, leaking 1,000 tonnes of oil into the crystal blue waters of a lagoon, threatening mangrove, seagrass and mudflat habitats. Since then, dozens of dead dolphins and porpoises have washed ashore. Anger has grown and sadness has deepened. But this is a different story – it starts two years ago in the same place in Mauritius, and I am walking down a muddy path in a mangrove forest. A guide is telling me about how the community has removed invasive species, cleaned up waste and planted mangroves. She points out a knee-high seedling...

MOBILISATION NATIONALE WAKASHIO /via REUTERS by John Konrad (gCaptain) According to a new report by Forbes, M/V Wakashio salvage and oil recovery efforts are failing on many fronts. These failures have resulted in deaths, environmental destruction, regulatory mission creep, gender imbalance, disregard for human health, and massive protests on the island of Mauritius and at embassies worldwide. And much of the blame lies with the International Maritime Organization, the maritime arm of the United Nation. “The IMO had a very clear mandate when it first landed in Mauritius,” says  Forbes contributor Nishan Degnarain.  “Focus only on the oil spill.  The salvage operation was out...

Around the world, faith in the economy is falling – and fast | Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide in World Economy News 11/09/2020 Public attitudes about the economy have turned bleak in much of the world as the coronavirus outbreak continues to affect daily life, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted this summer in 14 nations in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region. Assessments of national economies have seen swift downturns in many countries, and few see improvements anytime soon amid what the International Monetary Fund calls a “crisis like no other.” Overall, a median of only 31% of adults across the surveyed nations assess their country’s current economic situation as good, while 68% say conditions are bad. In 10 of the countries surveyed – including all of those surveyed in North America and the Asia-Pacific region – majorities consider the current economic situation bad. In Europe,...

COVID-19: Shipping data hints to some recovery in global trade in International Shipping News 10/09/2020 The coronavirus pandemic dealt a severe blow to global merchandise trade. Data from weekly port calls by container ships show early but uneven signs of recovery. The number of ships pulling into ports to unload and load containers rebounded in many parts of the world in the third quarter of 2020, according to new UNCTAD calculations. This offers a hopeful sign for world merchandise trade, which suffered a historic year-on-year fall of 27% in the second quarter. Maritime shipping saw a dramatic slowdown earlier this year as government measures used to curb the COVID-19 pandemic restricted economic activities and travel. By mid-June, the average number of container vessels arriving weekly at ports worldwide had sunk to 8,722, an 8.5% year-on-year drop. But new data show that, globally, the average weekly calls have started to...
