The author criticizes the move of English cheap flights entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson to attack the shipping industry concerning excess emissions and energy inefficiencies in March 2011. According to him, Branson was trying to divert the attention of consumers from the less efficient aviation industry. He argues that in reality, the shipping sector is more economical, efficient and cleaner than the aviation sector.
