Comments and Suggestions for Authors

The article focuses on Barrio Logan, a community where residents and industries coexist and where there is an air pollution problem, particularly from diesel particles. Since World War II, this community has faced environmental injustices. The report seeks to highlight the severity of air pollution, the costs, and problems it brings to the inhabitants. The study suggests the implementation of business models and logical frameworks for sustainability in Barrio Logan, including the use of a bus as a mobile health clinic and the distribution of portable air quality monitors to collect data on diesel particle levels. These projects aim to improve living conditions in Barrio Logan and advance towards meeting San Diego's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


The importance of community participation and empowerment through citizen science to address and mitigate environmental injustices in Barrio Logan is emphasized.


From my part, I consider that the report is well conducted and can be accepted in its current form.
