    • Yes, but just think if those cargo ships were powered by solar ! There would be NO pollution ! The cargo ship could tow 30 barges behind it covered in First Solar panels (actually due to the low efficiency of FSLR panels it might require 50 barges towed behind it). However, the cargo ships would only be able run during the daylight hours for about 8 hours a day - unless the barges were filled with batteries and then you would need 150 barges for First Solar panels and batteries. But hey, at least there would no pollution !
