The case was about compliance with the rules, not the actual health impact. If health impacts of emissions were important, the the US authorities would ban all the older diesels and heavy truck engines (not to mention heavy restrictions on gas guzzling cars). But that would start to hurt US diesel engine makers and US car makers; Now that would just be plain wrong.
