"Scientists found that between 40 and 60 per cent of the total global CFC-11 emissions originated from eastern China"

I can't say I'm shocked, because China certainly doesn't give a dang about the environment.

If they want to destroy all their water supply fine but you do not mess with the suns rays.

Not surprising I'm afraid, there is no moral compass in China, doesn't mean we shouldn't do what we can.

If you think America's billionaires will do anything for profit, then you wouldn't believe what a communist leader would do.

When was the last time you heard about the hole in the ozone layer? 30 years ago it was supposed to make South America uninhabitable, striking Peruvians with cancer and driving the rest of the continent underground during daylight hours... then AGW was invented/imagined and bigger profits and control were envisioned from that new scare cult. In another 30 years, Global Warming will be dead and the imbeciles will move on to wringing their frightened hands over that generations fear cult du jour, perhaps global famine predicted from ethanol usage and production or EMF screwing up the planet's gravity field or some such nonsense equivalent to the Ozone hole and Global Climate Change.

One is often no better than the other..thankfully there are exceptions though.

Well, since that flourine compound causes global cooling, we should be thanking the Chinese for using it and not signing the agreement that many other countries did that restricted it's use. If a country does not sign the agreements, they can still choose to lower use and not be penalized if they don't.

The ozone hole is still there in a spot, but it has not really hurt things, the other ozone holes have healed up.. It was and wasn't a scam, it was blown out of proportion though, they needed to fix a problem that was occurring so stirred up public fear to force compliance.

Wait, pushing of fear and improperly applied science is going to get far worse if we do not put a stop to it. Companies and organizations do it all the time to boost profit or to help to stimulate compliance. Pretty soon we will live in a society that makes the Nazi government look good, remember the Nazis used science to get what they wanted too.

It's not the fluorine in the refrigerant that does the damage, it's the chlorine that does it.

It's also common to hear about R-22 (the most common cfc out there at the moment) being manufactured in China, but shipped to the states labeled as R-410.

Well, the ozone may have somewhat healed due to far less CFCs..how long has it been since regulation?
As far as it not hurting things..it's hard to quantify that. It can be verified that skin cancers have tripled since the 70s..I dunno, food for thought.

Sure skin cancers have risen. They tell us we need to eat more fruits and veggies, they contain coumarins which sensitize the skin. Just not eating the chicken skin by selling skinless chicken has caused some decrease in oils in the skin of people which causes more dry and thinner skin since chicken skin contains collagens which we need to build skin, also the fat is decent to use to protect our skin.

This causes us to need sun block all the time or we get damage to our skin cells. A bunch of idiots set up our countries nutrition policies which are causing us to be way more susceptible to skin problems.

Don't confuse a few rogue companies in China with 'china' as a country. Most Chinese believe in made made climate change, and have seen fist hand the effects of pollution on human health.

What we are seeing here is a few greedy factory owners screwing over the planet in order to make a quick buck.

They are getting away with it because China is not wealthy enough to have a good monitoring system, not because 'its china'.

EVERY major corporation there has government overseers. They know what's going on, and they don't care. a reply to: AaarghZombies
