"Clean Diesel" still a lie. Time for Recall!

The misleading TDI "Clean-Diesel"-Campaign run by the automotive industry is still going on and on. But the carcinogenic particulate matter still remains a huge health problem, even with DPF and NOxOFF-Filter: The DPF ist very efficient it filters away 99.9% of all Particles, wow, that sounds great!, but if cm3 of raw Diesel-Exhaust contains 100 Mio of fine highly carcinogenic particles, 0.1% of it are still 10'000 highly carcinogenic particles per cm3. That is still a huge amount, given the fact that fine diesel-exhaust is a non threshold carcinogen. Time for total Recall!
