Toxic Diesel Fumes Prompt Calls for Control

Graham Watson

6th January 2017

Not good news for diesel car owners - or the environment - as a new report from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) makes clear. In it, they reveal that diesel cars produce 10x the NOx emissions per litre of fuel.

How might you subject this to closer scrutiny - you'll need to read the article to get a better idea of whether or not some of the other issues related to pollution. For example, is NOx the only emission from car exhausts.

There's also interesting discussion of changes in the regulatory regime for car emissions; which makes sense in the wake of the VW scandal.
