07.09.2019 - Website Launch

Today we launched the Climate Sailor website! Juhuuu!

08.09.2019 - Flight to Gibraltar

Today Chris is flying to Gibraltar to perform a test sailing trip to Portugal in order to test various scenarios and work situations on board e.g. video editing in a shaking galley, special camera angles, how to light the cabin for propper filming and to talk to the experienced skipper Wolfgang about sustainable and eco-friendly sailing.

09.09.2019 - CO2 Compensation

Today we talked to atmosfair, myclimate and several other organisations in order to find a way to reduce our carbon emissions as much as possible. We keep you updated!

11.09.2019 - Provision stocking

Today we went for provisions. While it is easy to buy local organic food without plastic packaging in Germany, it proved to be quite a challenge to find similliar products here in Spain. Unfortunately people here seem to be not as active towards an eco-friendly lifestyle as people in Germany.

12.09.2019 - Preparing the Boat

Today we prepare the boat for the test run to Portugal. My aim is to find out, how working and living on a boat actually works and if I can handle it. I will be filming a lot, finding good angles, trying to edit in the swaying galley, cook, read, sleep and much more while trying not to puke 😉

13.09.2019 - Setting sail

Today Chris and skipper Wolfgang are setting sail for the trip to Portugal. Chris will keep you up to date via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp.

You can see dolphins playing and hunting in the foreground. In the brackground you can see the industrial port of Algeciras (Spain). Its the 7th busiest port in Europe (numbers from 2010). Despite the heavy ship traffic, whales and dolphins are known to swim into the port... https://t.co/QRuVLRycZU climatesailor photo

In the distance you can see the rock of Gibraltar. In the bay are dozens of cargo ships anchoring, their machines are running as they wait for their turn to get loaded/unloaded. You can see and smell their fumes all the time. #pollution #ClimateChange #climatesailor #Gibraltar https://t.co/5hYpmKkzie climatesailor photo

While we are very busy planning this project, raising money and scheduling the route, here are some important facts about CO2 emissions that you should know:

- All cars in the world emit about 300 million tons CO2/year
- All planes in the world emit about 500 million tons CO2/year
- All ships in the world emit about 600 million tons CO2/year
- 15 of the biggest ships in the world emit as much CO2 as all cars (750 million) in the world!
- Germany owns most of all cargo ships in the world (there are about 90.000 ships on the oceans)
- Most ships run on heavy oil which is 300 times more poisonous than diesel!
- To make a ship more clean, you could install a katalysator and filters etc. that would cost about 500.000$ per ship. A bigger cargo ship costs about 50-100.000.000 (million) dollars, so installing a katalysator would be pretty cheap. However most ships do NOT use such filters...

-> The biggest emitters of CO2 are NOT cars, NOT planes NOR ships! The biggest emitters are the construction industry, the military and the agriculture industry!

-> Example 1: The world wide cement production alone emits more CO2 than ALL cars, ALL planes and ALL ships together!!!

-> Example 2: The US MILITARY emits more CO2 than a medium sized COUNTRY per year! They have about 7000 army bases all over the world which need about 320.000 barrel of oil EVERY DAY. This is about 50.000.000 (million) liters of oil per day! #climatechange #climatesailor #climatefacts #pollution #co2emission #climatechangeisreal #climatecrisis #climatechangethefacts
