CAUSE and EFFECT:
AN UNDERSTANDING GAP

Noisy, fossil-fuel-powered engines are some of the most polluting and least regulated machinery still allowed in modern society. And yet, the workers make no connection between the airborne pollutants from their own gas tools and the life-threatening effects they’re experiencing. Neither does the author. In fact, the vomiting and seizures mentioned in the opening paragraph are almost certainly the results of breathing high volumes of gas emissions, in addition to heat stress, rather than from just climate-change-increased heat alone.
