18 August 2016: amazing visualization of trade and shipping routes

There is an amazing visual mapping (and narrative) of global trade and shipping routes here 

The visualization shows the huge number of container, cargo and other shipping vehicles moving around the world at any one time, including the vast amounts of CO2 emissions that go with all this traffic. Shipping routes such as the English Channel, the Suez and Panama canals are major highways! It would be great to see how much of this is food related.
