Let's get Heavy Fuel Oil out of the Arctic

Greenland Government Agrees to Back Arctic HFO Ban: Clean Arctic Alliance Response

“We applaud Greenland’s government for speaking up for the much needed protection of the Arctic's nature and communities, by supporting the banning the world’s most polluting fuel - heavy fuel oil. After spending time measuring air pollution from cruise ships burning HFO in Greenland this summer, I’m very relieved that Greenlandic politicians support banning it.”
