According to fact sheet released last year by a coalition of environmental groups, heavy-duty trucks in United States used about 2.7 million barrels of fuel daily in 2013, accounting for 12.5 percent of the country’s emissions in 2013…Since then, the electricity sector has cut emissions, while the transportation sector’s emissions have grown. Transportation is now responsible for more emissions than any other sector.
Unfortunately, above news is from USA, while Premier Daniel Andrews compromises himself with TransUrban Plan for no rail and more container trucks with Western Distributor, also B-doubles every 10 mins for landfill from Dandenong all the way to Ravenhill and now more of same, long distance trucking of compostable waste from regional towns. What a clever country!!!
