    To me, the concerns about pollutive methods of transport pale next to concerns about the long term damage dealt to the ocean by failing to deplasticise it.  Actually running the numbers may produce data that contradicts that sense, but we're going to tackle the pollutive transportation problem anyway.  My worry is that we'll continually fail to elevate the inherent value of ecosystems and their nonhuman inhabitants and deprioritize them until they're no longer around to be assigned a priority, at which point we might not be around much longer ourselves, despite our cleaner tech.
