CNN’s Ignorant ‘Go Green’ Argument Bashes Asthma Patients, No Joke!

Have asthma? Well, you’re part of the pollution problem. Or so says the folks at CNN. They weren’t kidding, either. The MSM giant even produced a study to back up their outlandish claim.

So here is the bull, people who suffer from asthma “could sharply reduce their carbon footprint by swapping” to a “greener” alternative, chimed CNN in a report Wednesday on a University of Cambridge study.

“By swapping metered-dose inhalers for dry powder inhalers,” CNN explained, “users could reduce their carbon emissions equivalent to reducing their meat consumption or recycling, researchers said Wednesday.”

Oh dear, another asthsma attack … can’t breath … must use inhaler … but my carbon footprint … oh, if only there were a ‘greener’ alternative!

CNN further explained that “Metered-dose inhalers contain liquified, compressed gas hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) — a greenhouse gas — which acts as a propellant to atomize the drug being delivered and to pump it out to the user,” and “these metered-dose inhalers contribute 3.9% of the carbon footprint of the UK’s National Health Service.”

In fact, CNN noted, “‘[G]reener’ treatments, such as dry powder inhalers and aqueous mist inhalers, are available, experts said in the study published in BMJ Open.”

In other words, get with it, you heavy-breathing, carbon-footprint-increasing earth-haters.

CNN at least admits that there is a drawback to reaching for these “greener” alternatives, and much like AOC’s estimated $93 trillion Green New Deal and other green projects and causes, it has to do with your wallet. Yes, CNN noted, “the higher up-front price of some dry powder inhalers was a ‘significant barrier’ when moving to such alternatives.”

So, according to the looney moonbats at CNN, asthma suffers aren’t doing enough to save the planet. Nevermind that they’re forced to take whatever medicine that works. Forget that they’re tied to whatever drug their insurance will cover- they could be doing more.
