Diesel exhaust — the black smoke coming out of buses, trucks, trains, and ships — is the number one toxic air pollutant in California.1 Chemicals in diesel pollution can cause cancer, harm the reproductive system and aggravate or cause asthma. New research shows that West Oakland, California, a neighborhood surrounded by freeways and bordered by the Port of Oakland, suffers from far more than its fair share of this toxic pollution. Fortunately, there are a host of innovative solutions to reduce this pollution without harming the Port or local businesses.
