Report: Particle pollution deaths put at 9,200 a year in California (#1869)
More than 9,000 people in California are estimated to die prematurely each year as a result of exposure to fine particle pollution. That’s according to a report from the California Air Resources Board.
The ARB’s conclusions were based on recent scientific assessments completed by the federal EPA. These assessments were required as part of a periodic review of the national air quality standards for fine particle matter. It is found in diesel emissions including those from trucks, construction equipment, cargo handling equipment at ports and rail yards, transit buses and trash trucks among others.
