It's the right thing for government to protect our air, land and water and transportation mechanisms to be clean also#

The NYC Economic Development Corp. proposed a port in a neighborhood with 14 schools in a 15-block radius, in a neighborhood of Brooklyn that already has staggering asthma and COPD rates. The Port Authority does whatever they want to do, including reneging on their promise to replace old diesel -spewing trucks. Thank you for raising this issue!

I too have asthma and no one should suffer from it. I like to be able to breath and think everyone should be able to breath on their own.

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.~ petition txt

I live near a railyard/intermodal facility that decided to start using our small neighborhood streets as truck routes. There are three schools, a daycare center and a large care home within less than a quarter mile. We've already got the 3rd worst air in the US. Let's fix this nightmare

Various ports could be converting to trucks that meet post-2007 standards, but are not to maximize profits at the expense of people living in areas proximate to the port. The Port of Newark has refused to honor its commitment to make changes for example. Legal, legislative, and regulatory action must address these problems because industry clearly will not act voluntarily in an effective manner.
