The banning of CFCs cost us dearly as a civilization in increased energy use, materials costs for bigger heat exchangers due to less efficient refrigerants, etc. It’s hard to beat R-11, R-12, and R-22.

Absolutely. Here's a very old post of mine:

Scams, Scalawags, and an all-too-gullible Public...famous frauds sold to America

Well, damn- it seems to be lost! Circa 2000, I think-- I covered The War on Freon, DDT, Asbestos, and a few other things.

I came across that problem the other day. The date seems to be some time in mid-2001. 9/11 stuff is there, but posts from April of that year are MIA.

I sent a Freepmail to all the moderators, and no one answered. I guess I’ll hit up JimRob and JohnRob with the question.

There’s some good archival material gone from then.

A question for you gentlemen.

Backhoe and I have both recently noticed that material from all posts before some date in 2001 seem to be MIA. When you hit the links you get:

No such file (give_legacy_article)

Backhoe has a link to one such thread in the replied-to post. I have several more handy, if you need them.

What is the status of those threads? Are they gone forever? Might they return some day?

Thank you.

Backhoe, did you save any links you can repost?
