Funny holes happened long after CFC’s were banned, but that can’t be, Andrew said the government solved that problem LMAO!”

It’s almost as if CFCs last a long time in the atmosphere. and most of the stuff emitted in the 80s is still there, chewing up ozone. That being said, the ozone hole peaked alongside CFC concentrations and its peak size is slowly shrinking.

“I’ve been following this hoopla for ten years now, and I still haven’t seen a shred of hard evidence that human activity has any bearing on climate.”

I went for a hike in the woods and saw some clearcuts, but there was nobody with a chainsaw there, so I also saw no evidence that it was people that did it. I mean, the bootprints, sawdust, and tracks from heavy equipment aren’t actually direct evidence. They could be natural, or unrelated activity. The only evidence that counts is actually seeing someone cut down all the trees!

An Excerpt from Smithsonian.com
These days, scientists understand a lot more about the ozone hole. They know that it’s a seasonal phenomenon that forms during Antarctica’s spring, when weather heats up and reactions between CFCs and ozone increase. As weather cools during Antarctic winter, the hole gradually recovers until next year. And the Antarctic ozone hole isn’t alone. A “mini-hole” was spotted over Tibet in 2003, and in 2005 scientists confirmed thinning over the Arctic so drastic it could be considered a hole.

Government cannot solve something that is phony to begin with. Acid Rain and the Ozone Hole were just scams like this. Cutting use of CFC’s was a good move mind you, but the danger was far overstated , same with acid rain.

Humans have had only a microscopic effect on the planet’s climate. The sun dominates the heating of our world. The failure of Germany’s renewable energy plan shows that the old way of using coil and natural gas is much more reliable and cheap.

“Climate change” is not a problem to be solved, but a natural phenomenon to be adapted to. I’ve been following this hoopla for ten years now, and I still haven’t seen a shred of hard evidence that human activity has any bearing on climate.

They seem to have done a pretty good job on CFCs/ozone hole and on sulphur/acid rain. I think that carbon/climate change is more difficult, but in the same vein.
