The Oregon Environmental Council (OEC) just released an outstanding report on diesel exhaust.  The report, “Dirt on Diesel 2016: The True Cost to Oregon of Delaying Action” describes what diesel exhaust is, its effect on human health, the toll it takes on Oregonians, and how poorly the state is protecting residents compared to neighboring states.

To accompany the report, the OEC provides several infographics (see example below) and other useful information on a new web page, including a call to action for Oregonians to contact their legislators and demand they protect their health.
