I was under the impression that the cats take out certain chemical 
compounds, and actually change them to something more benign.  I saw a 
couple of comparisons to the diesel trucks, which are not cat equipped.  
But diesels do not have that kind of pollution they are trying to take 
out of octane burning cars.  Sure, there is more particle pollutants in 
diesels, but I understand that all around they are substantially cleaner 
to our environment than our gas cars.  The goal isnt to get rid of 
particulate pollutants, just the chemical ones.
