Vaping is an “environmental disaster”, say anti-vaping nuts


The Lancet has published a letter from three French academics arguing for a clampdown on e-cigarettes on environmental grounds. The authors give the game away early on by saying the quiet part out loud…

With the vape market mainly owned by the tobacco industry, it is legitimate to question whether vaping is more eco-friendly than smoking… [my emphasis]

Leaving aside the question of whether the vape market is mainly owned by the tobacco industry in reality (it isn’t in the UK), the implication is that it would be illegitimate to “question whether vaping is more eco-friendly than smoking” if it was owned by someone else. Why? An environmental issue is an environmental issue, regardless of who makes the product.
Or could it be that the authors are not particularly interested in whether e-cigarettes are eco-friendly, they are just opposed to everything the tobacco industry does?
