“The ban ... puts environmental concerns ahead of concerns for the estimated 3 million American asthma sufferers who use these inhalers,” DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton said in a statement.
DeMint, R-S.C., filed the amendment Tuesday to wall off funding for the implementation of the ban.
I would have loved for him to run for President. He’s a good man, probably one of our best.
Has DeMint lost his marbles?
Absolutelyl nobody thinks that the tiny amount of CFCs in athsma inhalers could possibly have any effect on the ozone layer. It is just too small an amount to matter.
This is an aesthetic decision. The US wants to put up a zero on the scoreboard, to show that it is using absolutely no CFCs, and athsma inhalers are one of the last things to eliminate. But there is no environmental reason to do this. We want to do it because it is pretty.
The fact that asthma sufferers will die in order to implement a pointless policy just because it is pretty does not matter.
They’ve never, repeat never, proven that CFCs are responsible for the depletion of the ozone layer. It wasn’t until the 70s that anyone even knew of the existence of holes in the ozone layer; and that’s only because they’d just invented the instruments to measure it. It would be more probable to attribute the holes to magnetic storms and solar flares and ejections.
Banning CFCs is just another stupid cause that liberals need to feel good about themselves.
Bannin CFCs is BS. They’re being banned purely because they can and for no other reason.they ca
1. Getting sufficient oxygen to sustain life
2. Possibly polluting the environment and causing global warming. Of course that is unproven, but "possible?"
So which WILL happen? And they choose "might happen" over "will happen." Amazing.
