Will it be better for the environment if shipping boats slow down?

    Indeed. If shipping boats reduced their speed, they would increase their fuel efficiency, reduce the amount of fuel they use per voyage, and therefore reduce the amount of carbon dioxide is being released into the atmosphere as well as the amount of fossil fuels that are being mined.

    You can read here about how Danish cargo ships reduced their fuel consumption by 30% by going half speed.
