#Stoppollution from toxic cruise terminal

If plans for the cruise terminal at Greenwich's Enderby Wharf go ahead, a supersized cruise-liner-hotel will chug out toxic fumes from its diesel engines 24 hours a day - 200 days a year - parked up near homes and schools in Greenwich and Tower Hamlets.
According to the developer’s own figures, generators on medium sized cruise ships consume about 700 litres of diesel per hour - that's like having 688 heavy lorries with their engines idling in someone's back garden!
Developers and local government are blatantly ignoring a European directive that says large ships should have access to ship-to-shore electrical power. In other words they should be plugged into the mains, instead of using their engines.
It's vital that:
- Ships have access to ship-to-shore power
- Pollution levels are monitored constantly - and that authorities introduce tough emergency measures when necessary
The terminal could be a great addition to the river, but only if it isn't allowed to spew out toxic fumes. So please SIGN THIS PETITION and SHARE IT on facebook or twitter.
It doesn’t matter if you live nearby, or where you are politically - developers need to know that profit doesn't come before our health.
