    I have been trying to find something on tractor trailers and perhaps cube vans, that relate to their contribution to the global warming. I myself live in norhern Ontario, Canada, a four lane hwy just back of my place, with a truck inspection station on both sides. These area’s are quite large and trucks idle there, with some all lit up, and refridgeration units running some times, this probably goes on in other locations to, and probaly when they are loading up, or stop for a snack, buses too, that is a lot of polution?
    My suggestion is to put solar panels on these vehicles, it would save a lot of exhaust from entering the air, by running the extras, oh yes you may have noticed at construction sites the solar panels that alert you to construction ahead
    Maybe could be put to use there?
    I don’t blame the drivers it can come mighty cold some nights, and they have to protect their load
