Sweet, delicious questioning.

"For comparison, an 18-wheeler diesel-engine truck would have to drive 143 miles on the freeway to put out the same mass of particles as a single charbroiled hamburger patty."

Yeah, right.

It's just some more of the New Puritanism.

It's a flip from the 1950s and 1960s - casual sex and illegal drugs are good, anything else that used to be enjoyable is now bad.

I have a hard time believing their numbers.

not the obvious after effects
... gives a whole new meaning to the words "after effects". Nyuck nyuck.

In the case of a state-of-the-art diesel engine's particulate emissions after filtering, it's probably true.

I too am wondering how many of those who conducted that study are also anti-meat

'Nuff said...stupid study.

First, they came for the CFC's, and I said nothing because I no longer used AquaNet.
Then, they came for the V8's, and I said nothing because my Mustang had been repo'ed.
Then, they came for the pate de foie gras, and I said nothing because I didn't know what that was.
Then, they came for the hamburgers, but I was too fat to do anything about it.

Taco Bell bean burritos not included in this air quality study? Hmmmm

Well, if they tested their theory in Riverside, then yes they would find emissions. And it's from UCR, where such emissions are required to graduate.

Seriously, though--Riverside? It has some of the worst air quality in So Cal. The smog blows in from the coastal cities, hits the mountains, and since it has nowhere to go, it just stews there.

your blog still sucks, same as yesterday's green-turned-red.

fake made up fact + blog = suck.

common sense is an oxymoron: optikeye: "For comparison, an 18-wheeler diesel-engine truck would have to drive 143 miles on the freeway to put out the same mass of particles as a single charbroiled hamburger patty."

In the case of a state-of-the-art diesel engine's particulate emissions after filtering, it's probably true.


But only if you ignore the emissions required to get the thing moving and only count the mileage rolling through Iowa and other flat, zero-traffic areas.

Yeah, its definitely the grilled foods. The fact that cars outnumber the actual residents by a factor of 4.5 to 1 has nothing to do with it.

Going out to get grilled burgers, chicken, and other foods...

It's still true, strictly speaking; and as an illustration of how we're often looking in the wrong places to find the most significant remaining sources of pollution, it's successful.
