Diesel-Affäre: 38.000 Todesfälle durch erhöhten Stickoxid-Ausstoß - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Rund 38.000 Menschen sind einer Hochrechnung zufolge wegen nicht eingehaltener Abgasgrenzwerte bei Dieselfahrzeugen allein im Jahr 2015 vorzeitig gestorben. 11.400 dieser Todesfälle entfallen auf die EU, berichtet ein Forscherteam um Susan Anenberg von der Organisation Environmental Health Analytics (LLC) in Washington. Die Gesamtzahl vorzeitiger Todesfälle durch Stickoxide aus Dieselabgasen lag demnach für die weltgrößten Automärkte bei 107.600.
