What's Big and Bad and Greenhouse Gassy?

Just a hint:

A recent study out of the Danish government's environmental agency adds to this picture. It suggests that shipping emissions cost the Danish health service almost £5bn a year, mainly treating cancers and heart problems. A previous study estimated that 1,000 Danish people die prematurely each year because of shipping pollution.
The Guardian report also suggest that shipping is responsible for 3.5% to 4% of all climate change emissions.
