Harldly mentioned anymore? Could it be before that in
the '70's it was fear-mongering about global cooling?
Then followed by ozone, now globaloney warming.
Writer H. L. Mencken had it pegged:
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the
populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led
to safety) by menacing it with an endless
series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
The Cloven-Piven tactic of manufactured crisis?
Global Climate Change is more lucrative. People aren’t so concerned about cancer now.
What happened? A Muzzie-Commie usurper was elected POTUS. Problem solved: Marxist in charge = no more ozone hole.
The same thing that happened to it when Bill Clinton became president.
They stuffed the hole with the ‘peace dividend’(which no one has seen or heard about any more, either) now there is no more hole!!! :)
The thinning was 10%. This 10% thinning was called a ‘hole’ by the MSM.
Ozone is created where the sun shines. The thinning was always measured over the Antarctic during our summer, and when the sun did NOT shine over the 'effected' area.
It was just one step in a long progression of test of mass credulity.
This hole ozone hole scare smacks of politicized science, the writer cites the banning of CFC from aerosals as the reason for it reverting back to normal, but I’m doubting this is the truth.

You don’t hear about it any more because it is even dumber than Anthropogenic Climate Change. Anyone who took high school chemistry should realize the ozone (O3) is highly reactive, in sufficient concentrations it can burn your respiratory system. The half life of stratospheric ozone is on the order of 3 minutes, and it is being constantly replenished by UV splitting O2 and the little lonely O’s look for O2’s to hang with. This happens over minutes, not years.
Easy. The Big Hair era in New Jersey came to an end and the Jersey grrrllllzzz stopped using so much hair spray.
It’s under the end zone of the Meadowlands.
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.
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]?
