The warmer the temperatures in the oceans, the less carbon it can hold and less carbon results in less phytoplankton and less phytoplankton means less aerosols, which can initiate cloud formation.
If this hypothesis can be verified in this field study, then pollution from ships must also have an effect on the formation of clouds and thus on the climate. From http://www.wwf.de/themen-projekte/meere-kuesten/meeresschutz/schifffahrt/ (translated):
"The exhaust gases from the cargo and passenger ships on the oceans contain forty-five thousand times more sulfur , soot and nitrogen oxides than allowed ashore for trucks . Still cheap and highly toxic heavy oil is burned as fuel and the exhaust expelled uncleaned. This is hazardous waste incineration at sea . The IMO now has nevertheless presented a roadmap for reducing the sulfur content of marine fuel. It must worldwide be lowered from the current 3.5 to 0.5 percent by 2020. In special areas such as the Baltic Sea , North Sea and Irish Sea , the sulfur content must be already reduced by 2015 to 0.1 per cent, so that in the next few years is expected to facilitate. However, resistance from part of the maritime industry forms against the already by the EU adopted emission regulations."
... and looking at the Diesel car emission scandal, there is little hope that these regulations will be strictly enforced in the EU.
