Norway’s government once urged Norwegians to buy cars that use diesel, thinking they were less polluting, but later determined that wasn’t true because of their nitrogen oxide emissions. Now Oslo’s city government is poised to ban driving with diesel on cold winter days, to reduce smog in the capital.http://www.newsinenglish.no/2012/06/14/oslo-may-restrict-driving-with-diesel/
This is good news.
We hope the WHO Report on adverse health effects of Diesel Exhaust will have also an impact on policy and legislation in other countries.
But, Citizens and Politicians, beware of the Diesel / Big Oil-Lobby / Automotive Industry! They just recently achieved to cancel the Diesel Ban in Athens that was introduced in 1991.
