Three British scientists shocked the world when they revealed on May 16th, 1985 - 25 years ago - that aerosol chemicals, among other factors, had torn a hole in the ozone layer over the South Pole. The ozone layer, which protects life on Earth from damaging solar radiation, became an overnight sensation. And the hole in the ozone layer became the poster-child for mankind's impact on the planet.

It was eaten by the “Jive-Turkey”.
It was stolen by the “Inner-Child”.
It went away with all the homeless people when a democrat was elected President.

“Whatever Happened to the Hole in the Ozone Layer?”
Occupying Apartment 4B in Building 7 in the ghetto of Discredited Leftist Mythologies, awaiting the arrival of its new neighbor, Climate Change.
In 2008 Rush Limbaugh had his 20th anniversary week in August of that year. Throughout the week he played tapes of shows from the previous 20 years. One tape from 1992 was a debate between Rush and Algore about the hole in the ozone layer over the south pole. Algore was screaming that if something isnt done fast that by 2002, five to ten thousand people a day will be dying from skin cancer. As usual he was wrong.
That hole just bought a $ 8.7 million mansion in Montecito, CA.
This will be the hole’s “A” home.
Otherwise known as the “A-hole”.
Anybody remember the media saying there was an ozone hole "over Kennebunkport" [Maine, home of the Bushes]?
They plugged it with our old R-12 air conditioners.............
I love the smell of carbon tetrachloride in the morning. Reminds me of highschool autoshop.
Wasn’t that when Bush Senior christened Al Gore “Mister Ozone”?
From “Mister Ozone” to “ManBearPig”...
Went the same way as the chloro and fluoro did from chlorofluorocarbons.
These SOBs have been going back to this well over and over. Hopefully, AGW will prove to be a major setback for them, but they'll come up with something else in a few years to replace it with.
They don’t need it anymore!
Yep! Scientist? Politician? Al Gore?
Somebody changed things on my keyboard. /sarc
Lets see, R-12 was .86 cents/lb, R-22 was $2/lb wholesale, sold for $6 retail.
Now, you can't buy R-12, R22 has been run out of the market thanks to the R410a savior freon, that sells for what?? $20/lb.
You do the math. A 5% tax (pick a number) on $6/lb R22 vs 5% tax on freon selling at $20/lb and I have heard it is higher now. The cows think they are saving the world and glad to give the government more taxes.
Not only that, all the HVAC companies had to buy freon recovery machines,,, more taxes, and charge the customer more for using it, more taxes...
The hole in the ozone was a scam just like global warming.
I never heard a good explanation of how the "scientists" thought CFC's migrated from where they are used the most (northern hemisphere).....
.....and ended up at the south pole (exclusively).
