How Much Longer Until Diesel Is Phased Out?

Hello all, first post here. Formalities over, on to business:

In the past few years I've become a fanboy of diesel and turbodiesel engines for old 4x4 restoration projects, but I'm not blind to the fact that diesel is a niche market when compared to petrol, especially in the passenger vehicle segment.

And now governments from England to South Korea are glowering at diesel, with a great many, especially in Europe, looking for ways to actually ban diesel as a fuel altogether. Some in Britain and France are vowing compression engines will be gone from the streets by 2030.

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I've only just been converted to the cult!

Calm my fears. Soothe my oilburning soul.

Tell me why diesel will be readily available all over the world as a passenger vehicle fuel for the next twenty years.

I'm going to a tech college for this and a couple of my teachers seem to think diesels will end up phasing out gas cars with the next round of EPA regulations and we will become a "diesel hybrid nation" this is here In the u.s.
Thanks, I just don't understand why so many people would be all up in arms over it, I mean the same people who bought them were all okay with them until they found out they didn't meet the hard to pass epa regulations. So what?? Still a lot better on the environment than gas motors. But all anybody sees is the black smoke blowing diesels and says oh that's really bad for the environment even though they have no idea about diesels.
