Take action to clean up car and truck pollution! March 21, 2024

The transportation sector contributes 29% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the US, making it the largest contributor. Cars and trucks not only emit carbon, but other types of pollution as well. Two of these co-pollutants, particulate matter and nitrogen oxides, can have dire health impacts, contributing to asthma, cancer, stroke, and premature death.

Over the past 50 years, adopting clean car standards has been one of the most significant actions taken to reduce our reliance on oil. Now, EPA has finalized a historic rule to decrease harmful emissions from cars!

Please join us in thanking EPA for taking action to clean up cars and encouraging them to do the same for trucks. Emissions from trucks contribute to many of the same devastating health impacts as cars, particularly for the seventy-two million people estimated to live near truck freight routes.

As we make our way towards a zero-emissions transportation fleet powered by clean, renewable energy, public health will continue to improve.
