Los Angeles – launched its campaign targeting Carnival Cruise Lines and the cruise industry today with a new report and an action at the Port of Long Beach Cruise Terminal where activists on a boat deployed a 10’ x 10’ banner reading, “Carnival Stop Polluting the Climate.” This campaign launches less than two weeks after Carnival received a $40 million fine from the US government – the largest fine ever for such behavior – for illegally dumping pollutants into the ocean.

“Carnival creates more climate pollution than any cruise company in the world,” said Todd Paglia, Executive Director of “Our climate is at the crisis point, and huge polluters like Carnival don’t get to stand on the sidelines any longer.”
