I heard Al Gore say in January 2006 that the point of the Montreal Protocol was NOT to save the ozone layer but to show that a global environmental treaty was possible.
So is the hole in much-hyped CFC-ozone depletion hypothesis.
Another inconvenient truth.
The Economic Times reports:
We can apparently add one more situation to the growing pile of instances where folks pushing the idea of man-caused global warming are caught trying to hide inconvenient details.
A post at Treehugger.com is titled, “Remember the hole in the ozone layer? We slowed that. We can slow climate change, too.” So let’s take a look at the ozone hole claim.
Not quite sure where they get the “also” part — i.e., ozone benefits in doubt. Climate claims a closer to speculation-cum-propaganda than science.
The study authors claim that the alleged phenomenon could slow recovery from the non-crisis of ozone depletion.
While ozone repairs itself naturally, it’s a different story for heavily exposed workers.
“Our research reveals an important negative feedback for ozone – a sort of self-destruct mechanism.”
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.

Fred Singer makes a few points about the ozone depletion alarm sounded by Sherwood Rowland, who passed away last week.
Rowland helped start ozone depletion hysteria.
Not that she mentions her budget is being cut or anything.
Warming bad. Cooling bad. Everything bad — except alarmist junk science.
Primatene Mist users have good reason today to curse Senate Democrats — as well as Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
The real “hole” is in the hysteria.
The Washington Post continued its crusade against the fumigant methyl bromide in an editorial attack on Chevy Chase Country Club for using the chemical. But as we’ve pointed out previously…
Time for a rethink of the Montreal Protocol?
