Cleaning Up the Air: New EPA Rules Target Truck and Bus Emissions

There is a deep appreciation for your recent advancements in setting stricter emissions standards for heavy-duty trucks and buses. While I understand there are challenges, the potential for positive environmental impact is undeniable. Transportation is a major contributor to climate change, and these new standards represent a significant step forward in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The projected avoidance of up to 1 billion tons of emissions over the next three decades is a powerful testament to the effectiveness of these regulations. The anticipated health benefits are equally impressive. A projected $13 billion in net savings from fewer hospital visits, lost work days, and deaths underscores the human cost of air pollution from these vehicles. Thank you for your commitment to a cleaner, healthier future.
