HEALING OUR WORLD WEEKLY COMMENT

Two-strokes - You're Out!

By Jackie Alan Giuliano, Ph.D.
When the average citizen thinks about air and water pollution, automobiles
and factories usually come to mind as the main sources. Little attention is
paid - except for the noise they make - to the millions of lawn mowers, leaf
blowers and marine engines that are in operation every day. Yet these
devices and their inefficient two-stroke engines are responsible for 1.1
billion pounds of hydrocarbon emissions per year and countless impacts on
human and ecosystem health.
