Tell Gina McCarthy and the EPA: ZERO deadly diesel emissions now!
Every day, trucks, ships and trains carrying cargo to and from shipping ports in California, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and more spew deadly diesel emissions into vulnerable communities. This constant stream of pollution causes asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and neurological disorders for those who live, work, or learn along these routes.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the power to end deadly diesel emissions. We call on the EPA to clean our air, protect our planet from global climate change and advance environmental justice by reducing air pollution and promoting zero emissions technologies at every port, rail yard, distribution center, and busy truck corridor across the country.
It’s time for Zero health risks and Zero emissions. Sign the petition to the EPA and Administrator McCarthy TODAY.

Gina Mc Carthy
I just signed a petition calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to require all ports and freight facilities to meet the same Clean Air standards required of other polluters.
Every day, trucks carrying cargo from shipping ports along our coastlines emit dangerous diesel fumes into local communities. This constant stream of pollution causes asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, stroke and neurological disorders for those who live, work or learn along these routes.
We can no longer allow ports and freight facilities to fall into the “regulatory cracks” due to confusion over jurisdiction and the power of the industry’s lobby.
The EPA must act to reduce pollution, protect our planet and advance environmental justice by enforcing clean air standards and promoting zero emissions technologies at every port, rail yard, distribution center and busy truck corridor across the country.
We share a common goal of cleaner air and better health for all Americans. Reducing diesel emissions at ports and freight facilities across the nation is the right place to start.
