Green World

In a world where the “green” label may not actually live up to its implied status.  Owners of diesel-powered boats are being reassured that they’re doing their part for the environment, and their health. That is the conclusion of a recent report from the Health Effects Institute an organisation that studies the effects of pollution, which found that emissions from diesel-powered vehicles do not contribute to developments of lung cancer.

The first study to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of lifetime exposure to new technology diesel exhaust. These new results, however, seem to dispel concerns that diesel emissions are acting as a carcinogen, particularly in newer clean-diesel engines. This is good news for clean-energy advocates and those concerned about public health, as it adds diesel to the growing list of viable options for consumers to take into account when choosing a new engine. The news that diesels aren’t doing as much damage to public health as previously thought is definitely good news. And it comes on the heels of some other industry tremors, in which there have been some revelations that cars marketed as “green” may not actually be better for the environment, as once believed.
