1) The behaviour of these inbred yokels (however distasteful) does not excuse the intentional deceit of a large multinational.Rolling coal = particulate emissions = bad for asthmatics, carcinogenic...
2) NOx compounds are so far the only proven isolate of auto emissions to cause respiratory distress (and even there, the link with asthma itself is weak, but stronger with "respiratory distress" overall). Hydrocarbons from auto emissions have not (thus far) been shown to be a direct causal link to respiratory conditions or cancer. Hydrocarbons from industrial pollution, and from occupational exposure (i.e., firefighters and smoke inhalation) do show again a weak correlation, but there are many other uncontrolled variables to state this outright.
