“if sensational headlines based on the WHO’s pronouncement serve to derail the significant progress that North Americans have made toward the adoption of clean-diesel cars as a viable, convenient way to reduce fuel consumption, it would be a major setback for the environment.”
With a national focus on fuel efficiency, there’s been a natural increase in the adoption of clean diesel as an alternative fuel source. WHO’s diesel-exhaust study stands to threaten that advancement. The important thing that shopautoweek.com wants people to know is that WHO’s study does not account for the difference between diesel engines and fuel sold in other parts of the world and the significant improvements that have been made here in North America to reduce the harmful emissions cited in the study.
The shopautoweek.com article also questions WHO’s findings, pointing out that the primary studies used were based on miners in enclosed areas and do not accurately reflect the risk of the general public, while other studies referenced were significantly out of date.
Andrew Stoy, digital editor at shopautoweek.com and proud clean diesel owner himself, says that “if sensational headlines based on the WHO’s pronouncement serve to derail the significant progress that North Americans have made toward the adoption of clean-diesel cars as a viable, convenient way to reduce fuel consumption, it would be a major setback for the environment.”
