  • New study quantifies the global health impacts of vehicle exhaust
    New study provides a picture of the global, regional, and local health impacts attributable to emissions from four transportation subsectors: on-road diesel vehicles, other on-road vehicles, shipping, and non-road mobile engines such as agricultural and construction equipment. The study, by researchers from the International Council on Clean Transportation, George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, and the University of Colorado Boulder, links state-of-the-art vehicle emissions, air pollution, and epidemiological models to estimate health impacts at the global, regional, national, and local levels in 2010 and 2015. Also, see statement from Diesel Technology Forum suggesting that the "Research Validates the Benefits of New-Technology Diesel Engines."
