On a positive note...

A German company is introducing sails it says may help propel ships across the sea cheaper and faster than modern engines.

The system allows for retrofitting of existing ships, and is a hybrid technology. The cost is in the hundreds of thousands. I think it's a step in the right direction, at least.
