Diesel smoke is the # 2 cause of Global Warming and is linked with 70% of cancers by national studies. The world's focus is changing progressively toward greater concerns and efforts regarding energy consumption, current pollution levels and environmental remediation.
Starting in 2007, new vehicles have mandatory emissions devices. There is a gradient program to force owners of existing diesel engines to retrofit their vehicles with emission devices. Existing emission devices achieve their results by constricting engine output, which in turn reduces mileage, power, and shortens the maintenance cycle and life of the engine.
In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that in 1995 fossil fuel contamination from combustion engines generated an average of:
|14,877,000 tons||of carbon dioxide (CO2)|
|10,026,000 tons||of nitrogen oxide (NOx)|
|5,322,000 tons||of carbon monoxide (CO)|
|3,663,000 tons||of hydrocarbons (HC)|
Universal studies conclude that when air pollution levels increase, there is a corresponding increase in time missed from work or school, the number of hospital admissions and deaths. Studies indicate exhaust emissions from vehicle traffic causes more deaths than traffic accidents. Intolerable amounts of carcinogens contaminate our environment, creating a global problem. These contaminates also impact the world's clean water supply, alters world agricultural patterns, may contribute to global climate changes, and generally affects human and animal health.
Recognizing the hazards of diesel fumes, California Clean Air Task Force 21 listed diesel exhaust as a "toxic air contaminant" in 1998 and similarly, EPA has listed diesel particulate matter soot as a "motor vehicle air toxic."
