Ross Klein

Ross KleinA writer, academic, and environmental advocate, Ross Klein is the author of Cruise Ship Blues: The Underside of the Cruise Ship Industry (New Society Publishers). He is widely viewed as the most knowledgeable person in the world concerning the environmental impacts of cruise ships. In his two books and many articles, he has written extensively about the environmental problems they create.

The industry is well known for copious consumption, but has in addition an invisible underside of garbage and sewage dumping, fuel and chemical spills, air emissions, and related harmful practices. He describes the record - $60 million in environmental fines in the past five years, sweatshop-like working conditions, concerns about passenger and ship safety, and much more. As an outspoken critic of the industry, Klein's is a unique voice.

He speaks about the sweeping changes needed to make the cruise industry environmentally sustainable and socially responsible.
