There has been a phase in my life where I was sometimes involved in trying to convince shipowners that they had options to improve the environment and avoid large scale pollution.

If the scrubbers make your eyes hurt, then ask the shipowners then to burn low sulphur fuel oil or LNG..

Which is exactly what Paddy Rogers advocated, it seems.
