Annotation:
According to the article, a new report released on February 28, 2007 by the Clean Air Task Force has caused a coalition of environmental groups to urge “State officials to do more to curb diesel pollution.” The report found that the “daily commute is a significant source of exposure to harmful diesel fuels,” as “the commute typically accounts for 60 percent of a commuter’s exposure to diesel pollutions.” Environmental justice groups believe that the report is significant and note that places such as Bridgeport, Connecticut, which has a high incidence of asthma, “has been associated with fine-particulate pollution from diesel engines.” Article taken from “Environmental Justice in the News” for the Week Ending March 16, 2007.
