New York Times op-ed tells the truth about Dirty Diesel

Do not miss this excellent op-ed piece in the Sunday New York Times by author Taras Grescoe.  A few notable quotes:

“We know better now. As anybody who has seen the black smoke spewing out of the pipes of a big rig as it changes gears can testify, diesel has a fatal flaw. It tends to burn dirty, particularly at low speeds and temperatures. In cities, where so much driving is stop and start, incomplete diesel combustion produces pollution that is devastating for human health.”

“Last month, the signatories of the climate deal in Paris agreed that the world has to begin a long-term shift from fossil fuels to more sustainable forms of energy. Recognizing “clean diesel” for the oxymoron it is would be a good place to start.”
