EPA’s Refusal to Hold Aircraft, Ships and Non-Road Engines to Pollution Control Guidelines
As Americans, we are recycling, installing renewable energy sources and investing time and interest in every possible way to adjust to and reduce our carbon footprint. However, it might be noted that ships, aircraft and non-road engines and vehicles in the U.S. carry the weight of responsibility of twenty four percent of the mobile source greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. This equates to emissions of around 290,000 tons of soot each year. If nothing is done, these sources are anticipated to have rapid growth in the next decades.
The EPA made announcements that they will not be taking action against these major mobile sources and don’t plan on instituting any pollution control guidelines to regulate non-road engines and ships. It has also included a delay in any regulations on aircraft.
