Maybe Jersey City could follow the lead of other cities that actually promote the adoption of EVs by subsidizing charging stations. All over the US, small and mid-sized cities are deploying charging stations that are free to use.

These policies encourage people to adopt EVs, which in turn leads to less air congestion and pollution, which improves the health of kids and cuts down on things like soot and the emission of greenhouse gases. It is no coincidence that pediatric asthma rates are so high in NYC and the region.

Standing room crowd in Jersey City; No new fossil fuel plants; More electric vehicles

Standing up against climate change

It was a standing room crowd at City Hall in Jersey City last week. More than 200 people packed the council chambers on Wednesday, April 17. They were concerned. They came to learn about and stand up against climate change. By the end of the evening, they were ready to take action.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla opened the event by commenting on some of the innovative programs being implemented in their cities. This was followed by a panel that included a climate scientist talking about efforts to mitigate sea level rise, an urban environmentalist discussing the disproportionate impact of pollution and climate change on poor and minority communities, a youth activist looking at the impact of climate change on her generation and a leading environmental activist challenging the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to live up to its obligations.
