State policymakers are gathering community input to develop an Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule that promotes clean, electric trucks in North Carolina. The NC Dept. of Environmental Quality will hold a virtual public hearing and listening session on Tuesday, February 21. Please attend to help shape the ACT and cut tailpipe emissions across NC’s highways and communities.
The burning of fossil fuels in our transportation sector remains the greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in both the United States and North Carolina and is the greatest threat to both our climate and health. Medium and heavy-duty (MHD) vehicles with fossil fuel-burning internal combustion engines make up 3.2% of NC’s registered vehicles but emit 26% of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 32% of particulate matter (PM), putting our health at risk. State officials will hold two final virtual meetings in February to develop an Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule that promotes clean, electric trucks in North Carolina.
Attend a public session and let your voice be heard, and tell NC why you support cleaner transportation for better air and health.
