HFCs don’t thin the ozone layer, but they are greenhouse gases. The Montreal protocol is about ozone depletion — can it really be used for global warming as well? Like EPA’s abuse of the Clean Air Act for greenhouse gases, the Montreal Protocol is being similarly expanded. Continue reading

The study authors claim that the alleged phenomenon could slow recovery from the non-crisis of ozone depletion. Continue reading
While ozone repairs itself naturally, it’s a different story for heavily exposed workers. Continue reading
“Our research reveals an important negative feedback for ozone – a sort of self-destruct mechanism.” Continue reading
“Despite a 25-year-old agreement that limits the production and use of ozone-destroying chemicals (the Montreal Protocol), stratospheric ozone in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, as well as globally, is no longer decreasing, but it has not yet started to recover either.” Continue reading
The bill to put back on store shelves Primatene Mist failed in the House yesterday by a vote of 229-182. Big Pharma apparently convinced enough Republicans that asthma inhalers ought to be less accessible and more expensive.
Is your HVAC tech simultaneously causing ozone depletion and global warming? [NYTimes]
I guess this is to be expected – Molina was integral to the Montreal Protocol nonsense, which was kind of a stalking horse for Kyoto and the climate crap. One pretend problem or two, what’s the difference? Continue reading
Oh good grief. This item claims Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is “directly beneath the world’s largest hole in the ozone layer“. Horse spit!
As this Mines ParisTech / Armines 2008 map of the surface irradiation in UV (280 – 400 nm) for a day averaged over fifteen years (1990-2004), expressed in J/cm², clearly shows it is regions with clear air and minimal cloud cover that receive the most UV. There is no GBR “ozone hole” but simply minimal air pollution. Note the similarity with this map of mean irradiance.
“Ozone hole”. Sheesh! Continue reading
People fell for the Montreal Protocol so, try tying warming to people’s cancer fears – that’ll get ‘em
“Climate concerns – Harvard researchers find link between climate change, ozone loss and possible increase in skin cancer incidence“
At first I thought this might be a spoof in The Onion or something but apparently this lot take themselves seriously. Continue reading
A new report finding that a majority of Germans lack sufficient vitamin D has set off a debate in the country between dermatologists and nutritionists, who recommend a simple, natural remedy for gaining more of the essential vitamin: sunshine. Continue reading
The federal government’s emissions pricing scheme will drive down the use of gases that have more than a thousand times greater impact on global warming than carbon dioxide. Continue reading
Elizabeth Rosenthal and Andrew Lehren manage to squeeze in two of humanity’s most absurd fears into this one: “ozone depletion” and “global warming” Continue reading
Tory MP says issues like pollution, and biodiversity have been dropped while economic reform has fallen off agenda Continue reading
California’s fields are stunningly productive. They yield ten times more strawberries, per acre, than strawberry farms in Michigan; twenty times more than farms in the state of New York. And there’s a complex web of reasons why. Continue reading
Ozone depletion, global warming, why the heck not – throw ‘em all in (must be a research grant in there somewhere). Just a small problem – they’re dead flat wrong. Continue reading
It’s a sad irony that for years growing a healthy strawberry conventionally has required methyl bromide, a chemical so harmful it has been banned by international treaty because it is destroying the Earth’s ozone layer. Continue reading
Steven Goddard at real-science.com is posting lots of old newspaper articles with scary predictions we already know to be wrong. Continue reading
