Nope. I’d be happy to hear that the PANYNJ made a statement about the historic IMO CO2 reduction agreement. I haven’t seen one. My tweet, however, was directed at our politicians representing ports & their climate impacted communities. Did Jerry Nadler make a statement? Carlos?

Thanks ! This is much nicer (and quicker!) than the earlier trip TO Manhattan, which included a 45 minute B61 bus ride from Red Hook to Jay Street.

“A View From the Hook” blog had something to say about this in 2012 when the Costa Concordia, owned by Carnival, ran aground in Italy. Nowhere on this planet should cruise ships, or any ship, be burning heavy fuel oil. Period.

How this for a quote?: "If shipping is to become more sustainable, governments and international organizations will need to be a part of the solution."

So much here, but how's this for starters? 1000 deaths per year in NYC region attributable to ship pollution. This is pre ECA, but without monitoring or enforcement, no-one knows how dirty and deadly the diesel is that ships are burning. FYI

This is the *first time* is being held in the US. Thursday’s theme is “Ports and shipping working together for the future”. Looks like isn’t presenting, but surely many representing NY and NJ ports are attending, right? It’s just down in Baltimore, people.

Yet not one representative from the great port city of New York had anything to say about it. No one spoke of how NY ports - existing or proposed - need to embrace zero emissions technologies that will allow shipping to meet & Paris Agreement CO2 emission & climate goals.

Great thread ⤵️. Same story here in Tacoma, where our publicly funded port treats polluting industry like cherished allies while dismissing legitimate concerns of workers, surrounding urban residents, and the Puyallup Tribe.
