Barcelona Is Threatening To Shut Out Tourists

Barcelona has no room to grow and people just keep coming. No number of pavement expansions and bus rerouting can solve the fundamental issue that tourism is the number one problem for the city.

Cruise ships are a particular problem because they run on fuel oil, which contains far more sulphur oxide than ordinary diesel.
