Health Effects Institute Extended Follow Up and Spatial Analysis of the American Cancer Society Study Linking Particulate Air Pollution and Mortality May 2009 Daniel Krewski et al Fine Particulate Air Pollution and Life Expectancy in the United States January 2009 C Arden Pope III Ph D Majid Ezzati Ph D and Douglas W Dockery Sc D This article in the New England Journal of Medicine examines exposure to fine particulate air pollution Such exposure has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality suggesting that sustained reductions in pollution exposure should result in improved life expectancy This study directly evaluated the changes in life expectancy associated with differential changes in fine particulate air pollution that occurred in the United States during the 1980s and 1990s Mortality from Ship Emissions A Global Assessment October 2007 An international team of leading researchers led by Dr James Corbett of the University of Delaware USA and by Dr James Winebrake of the Rochester Institute of Technology USA conducted the study released by the American Chemical Society journal Envirionmental Science Technology It was commissioned in part by the Clean Air Task Force with support from the Oak Foundation The study estimated that the global death toll in 2002 from particulate air pollution emitted by oceangoing ships was some 60 000 premature deaths per year And the shipping death toll is estimated to grow by 40 by 2012 along with a continued large increase in global trade and shipping traffic Europe and Asia are particularly affected about 1 3 of all shipping deaths occur in Europe and about ¼ in each of East Asia and South Asia No Escape from Diesel Exhaust How to Reduce Commuter Exposure February 2007 This report from the Clean Air Task Force CATF investigated the levels of diesel particles during commutes in several cities They found that regardless of how you get to work there is no escape from exposure to diesel exhaust and that pollution levels measured inside cars buses and trains during commutes were many times greater than levels in the outdoor air in these cities at that same time The combined weight of scientific evidence from this new CATF diesel exposure study along with the existing medical studies supports the conclusion that exposure to diesel exhaust during commutes poses a serious public health risk

evaluate new propulsion systems in transit buses and trucks The buses evaluated in the study were the original 10 proto type diesel hybrid buses from Orion and BAE Systems model Orion VI buses operated at NYCT That evaluation was the subject of a July 2002 report and provided results from the prototype buses from 1998 through 2001 This report focuses on 10 new compressed natural gas CNG buses and hybrid propulsion systems This report describes the evaluation results for new Orion VII low floor buses at NYCT with CNG propulsion equipped with Detroit Diesel Corporation Series 50G CNG engine and new hybrid propulsion equipped with BAE Systems HybriDrive propulsion system These final results represent a 12 month evaluation of these two groups of buses October 2004 through September 2005 The buses evaluated are the same age the same bus platform have been operated on similar duty cycles and experienced similar maintenance practices Conclusions of the report include Hybrid diesel buses showed an increase of 37 percent in fuel economy compared to standard diesel powered buses and 88 percent compared to CNG buses Maintenance costs for hybrids were 5 percent lower than CNG buses Emissions from the diesel hybrids were 90 percent lower for particulate matter 40 percent lower for NOx and 30 percent fewer greenhouse gases Drivers like the increased torque of the hybrid for help
