First of all,  the EPA did not Ban the use CFC's,  it was an
international treaty.

Secondandly, they are not environmentally friendly hyrdocarbons.  The
are not friendly, they are not hydrocarbons.

And thirdly, as I work with one of the sources that produces HFC's,
(Which are not being produced by DuPoint, by the way you conspiracy
nuts),  there are MSDS sheets that list known know risk and toxicity
data.  The effects that the original posture discussed would have been
discovered during product safety.
Also, the NTSB looked at toxicity data.
