American Lung Association's page on Diesel Exhaust

WHY IS DIESEL EXHAUST AN AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM?
Diesel exhaust is a mixture containing over 450 different components, including vapors and fine particles. Over 40 chemicals in diesel exhaust are considered toxic air contaminants by the State of California. Exposure to this mixture may result in cancer, exacerbation of asthma, and other health problems.

Better Enviromentallay Sound Transportation [Best]

  Best logo

Pollution, climate change, traffic congestion, urban sprawl - people are driving more cars further distances for longer periods of time. The result is environmental decline, and poorer health for Lower Mainland residents. We need effective transportation planning, adequate public transit, and a sound cycling and pedestrian infrastructure. Otherwise, our traffic problems will only get worse.

Diesel Town USA

A site expressing concerns of increased traffic congestion, wear and tear on the already bad streets, more big rigs in neighborhood areas, safety concerns near schools, and the huge pollution impact from diesel truck/bus emissions.

TBus Group Site [UK]

  TBus logo

Travelling in London is hellish for millions of daily commuters. Any idea that a 'cafe society' exists is blown away by noise and pollution from unregulated cars and trucks. Buses, forced to pollute in traffic jams, are unreliable service providers. In short, London's road transport stinks. We all need to consider zero emission electric buses and this site does just that.

A Green Future

   Green Logo

Traffic congestion would be even more intolerable than it is today in many a city if it were not for diesel buses. They are a much more efficient users of road space and energy per passenger than cars. They do, however, emit large amounts of SOx, NOx and worst of all, micro-particles of contaminated carbon. What can be done to make them cleaner and more attractive to car users?

David Bradley Online [UK]

  DBOL logo

The "The Electric Trolleybuses for Vancouver" WEB site was designed by David Bradley from material supplied by Kevin Brown, together with additional graphics, and help, from members of the TBus Group in the UK. Time was freely given to promote the continuance of trolleybus operations in Vancouver and with the completion of this work, our activities return to the maintenance of our personal WEB site "David Bradley Online". Take a few moments to check it out.
