A story on the radio today (NPR) talked about the new commissioner of the Port of Los Angeles who plans on converting the Port's trucks to pure electric, and in the longer term, to use PVs to produce the electricity. The article talked about the particulate pollution produced by the Port's diesel trucks, which frequently haul containerized cargo from ships as little as 20 miles or less, to local warehouses or railroads, or even to warehouses within the Port itself. It quoted him as saying that some number between 200,000 and 300,000 deaths (per year???) are caused by all that pollution, and his predecessors had resolved to cut the pollution in half; but he said, Why not eliminate it entirely? If this goes forward it would be great news indeed.
