Some Dutch activists feel their government isn't doing enough to prevent sea level rise. So they're using an unusual strategy in the climate change fight.
University of Arizona to study effects of biodiesel-blend fuels
The U of A has received a federal grant to study the relationship between the exposure to and health effects of the use of underground mining equipment using diesel and biodiesel-blend fuels. From Phoenix, KJZZ’s Mark Brodie has more.
MARK BRODIE: The grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health covers three years, and is worth almost one and a half million dollars. The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health and the Department of Mining and Geological Engineering will work together on the project. According to a release from the university, the study’s results will help determine the effects of biodiesel-blend fuels among miners, and apply data to establish health effects, both positive and negative, of the fuel on non-miners exposed to biodiesel-blend fuels through vehicle emissions.
