Transport maritime et changement climatique. Perspectives en Géographie.

Abstract : Shipping and climate change raises questions about reduction of the world GES emissions, or even the decarbonisation of maritime transport. In Geography, this problem involves a paradigm shift : considering the links between shipping and environment, no more in terms of ports right-of-way but in terms of global ecological footprint. Climate change challenges in the shipping world call at least two types of strategies : emission reduction, deceleration, and decarbonisation, through the promotion of integral wind propulsion for example. The latter implies a radical turn that would lead seaborne trade towards the renunciation of gigantism and the questioning of the principles of economies of scale that led to the processes of massification.
