The Alternative Fuel Vehicles Institute held a webcast about alternative fuels for school buses on March 13, 2007. The concern is about the health impacts of vehicle exhaust, especially particulate matter and NOx emissions:
- Over the past decade, dozens of studies from all over the world have shown that spending time in close proximity to heavy traffic, especially diesel truck traffic, is associated with a wide range of morbidity effects, as well as increased mortality
- Diesel exhaust particulate (DEP) declared a toxic air contaminant by ARB in 1998
(look for the link to the webcast).
The webcast is about 90 minutes long so get yourself some coffee and unplug the phone before you start.
