One of the biggest pollution sources downtown is diesel particulate emissions... but those who scream loudest against a cracker plant in a different county ironically also scream loudest for continued development of density in the downtown and surrounding neighborhoods such as the Strip and the North Shore - which will only increase congestion, which will only increase diesel particulate emissions, which will only increase air pollution...

Pollution from suburban and exurban industries = bad, bad, bad! Listen to Greta, we only have 12 more years!

Pollution from urban density = good, good, good! Signs of progress!!

It would be quite funny if it weren't so ridiculous.
Bingo

Anyone truly concerned with air quality isn’t choosing to live in Pittsburgh.

As to Greta, she’s as funny and hypocritical as she is ridiculous.

Yeah, maybe we could get a bunch of us to go down there and roll some coal and catch the great show. Good times to be had by all.

It’s quite hypocritical is it not. I’m glad others see it the same way as I do. One could argue densely populated cities pollute their own air. Which is most likely Pittsburgh’s case as well. The younger generation of democrats blame manufacturing, the gas drilling industry and Ohio for its pollution problems. It’s never these folks using more energy and producing more waste.

I love those fords. However I really have become a Ram pickup guy. The 2500 ram with the Cummins Diesel engine is a horse, it’s loud, can pull a house and gets 23-28 MPG without pulling a load. I’m looking for a older one to purchase before the pollution controls went into effect in the mid 2000s. I need that power navigating the streets of Pittsburgh. Some of the surfaces are so rough I could justify 4 wheel drive as well.

I do see a lot of diesel pickups in the city during the summer. Blowing their tailpipes on East Carson and Butler streets.

Me too. Ever see a black dude in a cowboy hat driving a diesel pickup with straw in his mouth, singing my tractor is sexy?

Hasn’t been a need to find an older one for years. The first thing many do after buying a diesel truck is to modify the exhaust/emission system, and add a performance chip. No need to look for an older vehicle anymore.

Diesel trucks are nothing how many try to portray them. Many are extremely quiet and extremely fuel efficient. There aren’t near as many out there “rolling coal” as some want others to believe.
