Very encouraging. I wish it were even more aggressive, but this is still good.

Here, in Seattle, it's visually evident that a huge amount of particulate comes from shipping. Especially during april and may, during our shutdown, the air was exceptionally clean - except in the harbor area.

I think a stronger CARB measure would require a shift to EV short haul trucks - think UPS residential deliveries, etc. - at an accelerated schedule. The technology is more than adequate now and the bottom line almost certainly indicates choosing an EV.
