EPA to celebrate diesel standard -- in Indiana!
The EPA is planning a big celebration October 10th in Columbus, Indiana, to herald the arrival of clean diesel fuel at the pump.
The diesel fuel is a big deal -- these fuel standards (first set by President Clinton's EPA) will enable advanced pollution controls on new trucks and buses.
The event comes as the head of EPA remains under fire for setting weak particle soot standards -- a decision that has been panned by EPA's own science advisers.
And there is a bit of irony here. in this event. The celebration features the heads of the Cummins engine business and the American Petroleum Institute. Both sued to block the diesel cleanup, but lost in court. If you can't beat them, join them.
