Re-route diesel traffic.

    1. Petition by

      Occupy Our Air

Move the Peace Bridge diesel traffic away from the entrance to our community. This is a correctable albeit life threatening health issue to every resident of Buffalo's West Side.

To:
Peace Bridge Authority, Governor Cuomo and Truck Unions, Occupy Our Air
Study the harmful diesel emissions that fill the winds over the West Side. Re-route diesel traffic.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    3. Occupy Our Air: Why Buffalo's West Side's Health is Uniquely at Risk.

      Dear Team--

      Unique to the West Side is its high ranking in the nation as a community breathing in a constant flow of southwesterly wind-carried diesel particulates. The outdated laws ignore the tiny sized particulates which science cites as far more dangerous than larger ones. West Siders die earlier from lung and heart disease directly related to their diesel-consumed air. Read more about diesel:

      Diesel exhaust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) is an aqueous urea solution blended with 32.5% high purity urea and 67.5% deionized water, used in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to lower NOx concentration in the exhaust emissions of diesel engines. Diesel exhaust (known as clag when emitted by diesel locomotives, or diesel engine emissions in scientific papers) is the exhaust gas of a diesel engine.

    4. Today's FB Discussion on Peace Bridge Diesel-Health Issue

      Hi team--
      Here are the first three comments in succession on today's discussion on FB. I particularly like Mike Sendor's comment because it is so brazen and transparent of our opposition's absence of conscience. Note that I request of him we be able to put his quote on our posters. --BZ

      Doug Turner: Down with duty free. Give Buffalo back its parkland. Its Olmsted heritage. Build a truck bridge at the International span.

      Mike Sendor: We need that Border crossing and the revenue it brings. If you're not happy about the truck traffic, move. There's plenty of other places to live in WNY!

      Bill Zimmermann: Hi Mike. You are highly credentialed and respected and on that basis may I ask if we can use your above quote to symbolically represent the opposition you speak for. I feel sincerely it would greatly help our cause.
