This Friday on Bread and Roses we talk about the real impact of diesel pollution in our city of Portland. A petition created last year by Neighbors For Clean Air, a local non-profit working for air quality, declared “One of the most serious current threats to public health from air pollution comes from the burning of diesel oil… The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that diesel exhaust in Oregon causes some 468 premature deaths a year – which means more Oregonians die from diesel exhaust than from murder and drunken driving combined.”
