Thank you! And, yep, still fighting to get *every* ship to plug in. Unfortunately, many or our representatives/agencies prefer to hobnob with et al, rather than hold them to account for their environment and health impact on our residents. That must change.

Right. As in New York, lots more work to be done to eliminate ship pollution. But congrats on this important win, and keep fighting the good fight!

Look at the pollution spewing from cruise ship in the middle of beautiful Sydney Harbour! How is this acceptable in this day and age? We can do better!

The Mayor of London speaking out about cruise ship pollution & applauding the abandoning of plans to build a cruise terminal *without shore power* next to dense residential populations. I'm jealous. ? PM2.5

Wish we had this sort of coverage and scrutiny in NYC. No-one seems to care about polluting ships poisoning our air, largely because there is so little awareness of the issue. If the covered these issues, maybe we’d get more action on solving them.

A win for anti-cruise ship pollution activists. Congrats to and all who fought against building a cruise terminal *without shore power* next to dense residential populations.

The case against cruises: "Cruises shake down local economies — and their own workers" "Cruises dump fuel and human waste into the ocean"

Scrubbers prolong the use of toxic heavy fuel oil. It is not an investment in green technology it's an investment in a cheat device to continue the use of HFO instead of investing in real solutions to save health and the environment.

Beautiful morning in Red Hook and the Queen Mary has just docked but not plugged in the $21 million electrical system we paid for so our children wouldn’t have to choke on diesel fumes and have sulphur dust settle on us. Rep. , can you get to act?

Important story about impact of on its residential neighbors: "The shipping industry is hiding in plain sight: everybody knows it’s there; everybody benefits from the trade that passes through them, but few take notice of the environmental costs"

Scrubbers open the door for cheating on sulphur regulation. Harmful for environment and market. "IMO made the mistake of permitting the use of scrubbers"

The ship is running its main engines now. When at sea, these ships burn 1,400 gallons of the dirtiest diesel on the planet each hour. That’s 250 tons or 66,000 gallons a day.
