New report details diesel danger for commuters

Our friends with the Clean Air Task Force are releasing a new report today that should give pause to any commuter.

Here is how their news release begins:

Diesel fumes pose a major health risk to commuters, according to a new report by the non-profit Clean Air Task Force.

The Boston-based environmental research group reported today that even though we spend only a tiny portion of our day commuting, it's during the commute that we receive more than half our overall exposure to deadly fine particle pollution.

The full report should be available today online at www.catf.us/goto/noescape
