Yellow cards won't help when the possible reward is a penalty kick. And it's also much harder to see for the refs than on video. GordonGecko is right, the solution to eliminate diving is to hand out suspensions after the game based on video footage. Make them escalatfiest (1 for the first dive, 2, 4 etc. for the ones after) and players will think twice before going down.
