Oakland Bulk & Oversized Terminal Won’t Cause Asthma: Alex Epstein

No one talks about the pollution caused by the large trucks that run through West Oakland. Studies show a true direct connection between truck traffic and asthma.

One 2009 study by The National Institutes Of Heath and called “Air pollution and childhood asthma: recent advances and future directions”, written by Molini M. Patel and Rachel L. Miller, reported that “It is now understood that traffic emissions, especially from diesel trucks and buses, contribute a large proportion to air pollution levels in urban areas. Consequently, current research attention has shifted toward improving exposure assessment and characterizing adverse health effects associated with specific sources and components of airborne traffic-related pollutants.”

The OBOT, as conceived by Oakland’s , the original developer, is designed to dramatically reduce truck traffic, thus bringing better air conditions to West Oakland.
