When Adam says that cruise ships emit as much GHG as a million cars, I think he must be referring to the whole fleet of cruise ships, not just a single one. That would not be credible. But even so, the argument is powerful. Nobody needs to travel. We just do it for fun. If there is a real climate emergency, we should stay at home and only go locally for essential work.
