Albuterol has been available in HFA propellants for quite some time now. The real scandal is with salmeterol, which doesn’t adapt well to HFA. It’s been replaced in the U.S. by a dry powder form that the user sucks into the lungs—not nearly as effective as the aerosolized version. I know from experience. I used Serevent Inhaler for several years, and was asthma-free. When the aerosolized version went off the market, I was forced to use the dry-powder variant, which didn’t work anywhere near as well. I can no longer call myself asthma-free, thanks to efforts by Glaxo to “save the ozone layer.”

They want “green” to elicit meaning whenever they use it in slogan form. We should use the counter slogan, “fascist,” anytime the enviro nuts use their cutesy word in our presence.
