New Petition: Campaign to Reduce Fine-Particle Emissions in Cities August 18, 2005 1:22 AM

Hi All! Hybrids and zero emission vehicles really help to make cities cleaner... ...i hope it is okay to show this petition here for Hybrid Vehicle Supporters (if not then just delete it). Thank you. New Petition: Campaign to Reduce Fine-Particle Emissions in Cities Dear All! This is a huge subject to tackle. Fine-particle emissions mainly from cars, buses, trucks, motorbikes and scooters in the cities have not only impact on our health but also new-born babies, animals, pets, trees, plants... Researcher Ari Lampinen, scientist based in the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, very kindly helped me to create this new petition. If you are interested to use the same concept or to modify, and to petition authorities in your country or/and city, please, contact me. I just would like to know about it and possibly cooperate with you. We are in the same boat. feel free to post your friends. thank you!! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/401470832 Campaign to Reduce Fine-Particle Emissions in Cities We undersigned urge the Government of Finland immediately to transpose The Directive (2003/30/EC) that requires 2% of all road traffic fuels sold be biofuels in 2005 progressively increasing to reach a minimum of 5.75% of fuels sold in 2010. We undersigned strongly urge Finland to exceed these goals, and to represent this plan in the conference of ASEM countries to be held in Helsinki, 2006, in September. We undersigned also strongly urge making electric cars and other zero emission vehicles like scooters and electric bicycles available for consumers with competititve prices by means of taxation. Stavros Dimas, EU Commissioner for the Environment, says: “Most of us live in cities – so the quality of our urban environment is an issue of daily concern. European environmental legislation is already delivering cleaner air, improved wastewater treatment and many other benefits. We are now looking to see how we can best exploit the positive links between these laws, and how best to support local authorities in their efforts to improve the urban environment. We are seeking the views of citizens and experts alike on this.”  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
