11,000 citizens urge EPA to cut pollution from trucks

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering a clean trucks rule to clean up smog and climate pollution from heavy-duty trucks and buses. Today, 11,390 activists and supporters of Environment America submitted public comments calling on EPA to strengthen the rule. 

Trucks create pollution that is warming our planet and polluting our communities. Smog pollution from trucks is a threat to public health, causing childhood asthma, cancer and even premature death. A stronger clean trucks rule would clean up dirty diesel trucks and accelerate the market for zero-emission electric trucks. Cleaner trucks can deliver cleaner air, and Environment America will continue to advocate for the strongest possible limits on pollution from heavy-duty trucks and buses.
