Oh noes, we're doomed - again!
Interesting how the article states that "The hole in the ozone in the Antarctic was caused by human produced chemicals and unusually long
So we're getting unusually long winters now? Thank goodness it's now called climate change.
I don't buy the ozone hole theory much at all and believe ozone is merely a chemical reaction between the sun's radiation and oxygen, which
temporally forms ozone which is unstable and therefore it is the oxygen protecting us from harmful radiation and not ozone itself..
You shouldn’t really use sarcasm unless you are absolutely sure you are correct... And, judging by your post, I would say you are not sure.
You don’t "buy" the ozone hole theory much?!?!
Doesn’t sound very sure to me...
We have scientists who have been studying this area for decades. They have backed it up with evidence and data. The whole world stopped, listened, and
made changes in an attempt to prevent further loss of the ozone layer. Skin cancer rates in Australia increased and CFC's were banned (although still
used illegally in some countries)
But you don’t buy it?!?
Sorry, don’t mean to sound rude, but I think I will take these scientifically researched facts over someone’s non-scientific opinions, hunches and
misunderstanding of theories.
I am certainly not a scientist... But even I can see that climate change does not mean everywhere gets hot and that there is no whole above major
cities because certain gasses can collect at the polar regions. Things that happen in local areas can often have impacts in other parts of the world.
Like the sub-Saharan dust that is thought to be causing increased asthma rates in the Caribbean...
There is a growing, and worrying, trend lately where people will dismiss and scoff at anything related to environmental issues. This blasé attitude,
to our fragile natural world, seems to have no real scientific foundation and often seems to come across as nothing more than macho bravado or "head
in the sand" ignorance... I really don’t get it?!?!
Sorry if i come across as rude... it’s not meant to be, it’s just that my frustration sometimes comes through in my writing.
