Tier standards for diesel engines won't help my brother who for 25 years was a heavy equipment operator. Now, his lungs look like he was a coal miner, black lung.

I operated diesel tractors as a kid. To this day I can't stand to get close to a diesel without getting a headache instantly. My headaches have been going on for decades. It only takes a few seconds for them to occure. I'm healthy, just had a stress test, good heart. No medical problems the doctors know of.

I know diesels are necessary for large trucks and tractors.

If I were in charge diesels would have to clean up their act so I don't get a headache. I have to stay at least a 1/4 mile behind any smelly diesel.

I hate it when pickups have to show off and blow black smoke in town next to me.

wonder how long this post will last?

With all due respect to you and your sensitivity to diesels George, isn't that a bit, actually a lot, self centered? Propane burns real clean but the exhaust gives me a headache, so does gas exhaust. We can probably engineer a really clean burning fuel, but at what cost? Is your headache and mine worth destroying our economy?

What about my brothers lungs? Even my lungs have black spots. It's more than just a headache, it a health concern.

States have addressed black particulates from diesels, they just don't enforce the laws.

I'm not in favor of destroying our economy, just cleaning it up a little. I realize diesels are necessary.

How do prove it was from the diesel and not the dust and dirt from working the equipment? There are people with spots on their lungs that never got around diesels but were around a lot of dust. None of it is good for you, but calling out diesels when there are so many other causes ignores reality.

I'm hoping to get back to working my horses. Lots less dust and dirt and no fumes at all!

You can believe whatever you want about diesels. Just google diesel exhaust health effects. There is tons of info for you to look at or you can ignore reality.

I know many people who get headaches and are not very fond of black of diesel exhaust.

I never liked the view of working horses.
