Heavily Polluting BNSF Argentine Locomotive Maintenance Facility

The Diesel Health Project is a member of the Moving Forward Network, a coalition of dozens of organizations throughout the country united in the Zero Campaign  – a movement to require that ports and other freight facilities meet clean air standards so that their deadly diesel emissions – causing asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, strokes, and neurological disorders – are eliminated.

To help raise awareness of the air pollution and health problems caused by unregulated rail yards and other freight hubs, the Diesel Health Project participated in the MFN National Week of Action with a bus tour of the overburdened neighborhoods around the BNSF Argentine Rail Yard,  and a demonstrations in the use of an air quality monitor.
