EPA awards $20k to local diesel truck monitoring group

According to yesterday’s EPA press release, Communities for a Better Environment gets $20,000 to continue studying diesel exhaust emissions from Port of Oakland big rig trucks in West Oakland. Judging from the CBE site this looks like people stand around and count the number of trucks going by.

I hope it’s more involved than that.

This is so American — spend mitigating pollution instead of stopping the production of pollution in the first place.

Better than nothing at all, I guess. The down economy is probably helping most.
