Sign the petition for shore to ship power

Help put pressure on the government to address our concerns  about air and noise pollution by installing shore to ship power at White Bay.

Sign the letter below:

To the Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight,

Cruise ships at the White Bay Cruise Terminal are still burning sulphur diesel fuel, putting the local community at risk of health problems including asthma and heart disease.  The only long term solution is shore to ship power in White Bay. There's no price that can be put on health.

We call on the Government to urgently implement shore to ship power and require cruise ships to turn off their engines whilst berthed at White Bay.

    It’s just sensible good governance to do this. Crazy not to. Can it be solar powered? Can it be marketed by cruise companies as a green credential to their customers? Cruise companies offering trips to canada and Alaska do.

    The emissions from these ships is highly toxic. Nobody should be subjected to this. Francine Hawker

    Sacrificing the health of citizens (who then later on have to pay the bill through increased health cost) to the benefit of corporates is criminal. It is also shortsighted to think

    that international visitors will keep coming (and spending) once the environment is destroyed. Facts show, that cruise ship visitors spend hardly anything in port.

    The Government’s voluminous reports fail to identify the simply solution of banning overnight stays of cruise ships. Where is the cost of such a ban in any of the reports? The biggest noise problem since the Parramatta Speedway and the Government fails to identify the easist solution!

    Just horrified with this NSW State Gov’t attitude, positive action is needed as soon as possible.

    Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
