Hamburger creates more pollution that truck

Hamburger

Who would have taught that a production of a sin?! hamburger creates more pollution than truck?!

According to the scientists from the University of California the commercial char broilers – like the ones used in the fast food restaurants, are doing more harm than an 18-wheeler.

The char broilers send a staggering quantity of particles into the ecosystem and according to the researchers it is more than any truck and factory. Bill Welch, who is behind the study made a statement where he pointed out that emissions from commercial char broilers are a very significant uncontrolled source of particulate matter…more than twice the contribution by all of the heavy-duty diesel trucks and it is more difficult to control fast food industry than it is any other. Making single char broiled hamburger patty creates as much emissions as an 18-wheeler diesel- engine truck driving 143 miles on the freeway.
