UPDATE, 6/29/07:

Another alert, this one from the Natural Resources Defense Council:

Tell the EPA to reduce pollution from dirty trains and ships now

The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a series of new standards that would help reduce the dangerous air pollution created by diesel ships. The EPA is accepting comments on its proposal through July 2nd, so send a message right away urging the agency to implement these improvements.

Support Cleaner Ships and Trains

Trains and ships are major sources of air pollution. Nationwide commercial ships and trains emit about 20% of the smog-forming nitrogen oxide pollution and about 25% of diesel soot pollution from the transportation sector.

That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency has proposed rules to clean up the pollution from trains and ships. And you have the chance to comment on their plan!

Take action! Voice your support for cleaner trains and ships – and ultimately healthier air. Comments are due by July 2nd so take action today!
