EPA announced the following enforcement action against engine manufacturer Detroit Diesel Corp. today:
EPA noted the following about diesel exhaust emissions in its announcement:
- Note EPA fails to mention in this paragraph that the agency believes any exposure to diesel exhaust can cause death within hours of inhalation — diesel exhaust is, after all, 95 percent comprised of the supposedly deadly PM2.5. EPA was either negligent in omitting this key point or else JunkScience.com’s campaign to expose EPA science fraud is having effect.
- Note the underlined text about diesel exhaust being particularly harmful to children. But recall EPA-funded researchers sprayed diesel exhaust up the noses of children as young as 10 in experiments conducted at the University of Southern California and UCLA — after proposing that experiments on children be banned and after the state of California determined that there is no safe exposure to diesel exhaust (see Conclusion #20).
BTW, EPA’s notion that spending every dollar spent reducing diesel exhaust emissions produces $13 in health benefits is total nonsense — most importantly because there are no health effects avoided or prevented caused by reducing diesel exhaust emissions. So zero times whatever-made-up-value-EPA-assumes-as-the-economic-value-of-an-avoided-health-effect equals zero.
