industry doesn't have the right to kill or sicken people in order to keep expenses low - - - AGREED. However all decisions have consequences. Diesel fuel is now cleaner, but at $3 gas and $4 diesel nobody is asking to buy a diesel car, which is arguable better for CO2. When manufacturing in the US is more expensive, it will shift to other countries. Very few decisions are 'all good' without consequences.
