Gustavo Rodriguez's insight:

In my opinion one of main factors that influence the development of a society is  they way it uses technology. Under the current efforts of shifting the impact that our societies have on our planet, scientifics, engineers  and designers have joined forces in the development of hybrid technology. The revolutionary design and the fuel efficiency of this ship marks the  introduction of hybrid technology in the transportation by ocean. Hopefuly the returns on fuel cost savings will inspire the production in large scale of means of transportation that use Eco friendly technology.

It's all really interesting, one just wonders why hasn't this type of technology advanced. We see Eco-friendly automobiles. trains. and several other things, I just don't know why we don't see this in production when it comes to flight and sea transportation.

This is very interesting. I know we are moving into the hybrid industry for vehicle manufacturing and it is great to find out about similar technological advances in other areas. If this works well i can imagine hybrid airplanes would follow.

Since I have done my case study on Innovative Environmental Technology, I think this a great idea! I love how the cruise ships are evolving in a positive way for our environment.

Gustavo Rodriguez's insight:

Under the current climate situation, it is critical that large companies and corporations take responsability in the emissions thay are responsible for. Carnival is currently taking a step ahead of its competitors by improving technology and controlling fuel emissions related to the operation of its cruise ships. In this way, Carnival will be caring for the planet and setting an important trend, but the company will also be saving on fuel costs while improving technology and operation standards.

That is a great step that Carnival is taking toward cleaning its emitted air, it is the time for these big companies to re act in this critical environment circumstances that the pulltion level is accelarating as well as the global warming, and it will be also better for this technology to be shared to other companies, so everybody can contributes o protect our enviroment.

I think that as a large corporation, carnival is taking the necessary steps to being socially and environmentally aware and actually doing something. I think using a filtration system is proactive and i hope that all ships at least start taking a look at carnivals initiative
