Great article, one part I think is total BS.

Sulfur emissions from diesel engines cause as many as 10,000 deaths a year among Americans with heart and lung ailments, said William Becker, who represents state and local air pollution control agencies in the United States.

The key phrase is "AS MANY AS". This is like me saying that if you come see me with a pizza in hand, I will give you as much as $100000 for a tip. That means I can give you anything from nothing to $100,000. So with that qualifier, it is not BS.
