Deadly diesel kills 38000 in 2015

Óleo diesel

Diesel oil kills. And it’s no small matter. Only in 2015  more than 38 thousand deaths were related to the burning of fossil fuels, associated with lung cancer and diseases of the respiratory and cardiac systems. Detail: This number include only 11 countries that consume the most diesel in the world and Brazil is included.

Scientists have proven that there is a huge difference between the emissions recorded in certification tests and the actual vehicle emissions, which were 45% above the expected limits. This is also bad for the atmosphere generating gases that contribute to the formation of acid rain, global warming and climate changes.
