Not so long ago, humanity stood on the brink of a self-inflicted catastrophe. Our use of ozone-depleting substances such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) had torn a hole in the ozone layer that protects us from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Read full article

The hoax that fathered the global-warming hoax. Improbable and unproven theories pushed by politicians, certified by hacks paid in government grants, and force-fed to the public by a leftist dominated news industry. I'd like to see this revisited by group of competent and skeptical atmospheric scientists and chemists -- it's not possible to say it's all absolute nonsense, but it has never been proven to be anything else.Sep 16th, 2015 - 03:52 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

There was never a hole in the ozone layer, there is a thinning over Antarctica every year and it reforms again. How many people live in Antarctica? Certainly not 2 million.
As a result of the ozone campaign, up to 2 million cases of skin cancer may be prevented each year, along with even more avoided cases of eye cataracts.

@1. I understand your thoughts and feelings. The problem is What constitutes proof? I note that the so-called proof, by the reduction of the Arctic ice-pack, then saw the ice-pack grow larger the next year. Then there was the revelation that the computer model being used was faulty.Sep 16th, 2015 - 05:18 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
The hurtful thing is that governments demand increased taxes to pay for the research. How does it get corrected? Oh, that costs money as well. Surprise! What I'd like to see is total accountability. Let's see every company and government agency account for every penny. Who will benefit from corrective action, assuming we can correct a planet? Then there's no justification for anyone to make a profit.

Government is in the business of creating one crisis after another to scare the public into going along with things they wanted to do for political, or financial reasons, before they had invented a disaster to save us from. Government will not correct itself -- unless the public pays attention to what they are trying to do, and forces them to back off, they will do as they please.
