NYC is divesting from fossil fuels, suing Exxon, yet are OK with ships burning tons of the dirtiest diesel while in port, instead of connecting to zero-emissions shore power - the *only* technology that eliminates CO2 plus deadly particulate emissions from ship exhaust

There needs to be monitoring & enforcement of shore power use at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. Millions were spent on this zero-emissions power system yet it remains unused.
