I don’t care if there is a hole or if there isn’t a hole.
There isn’t one damn thing the US government is gonna do about it aside from tax and spend, so who cares?
If it’s there, great!
If it’s not there, great!
All the mammals on earth exhale CO2 when they breathe. What’s to be done about that, apply for another grant, create more horsesh-t? Some how I think it’l be the horsesh-t by a landslide.
Where does ozone come from?
It is made when radiation strikes water and releases the ozone molecule into the atmosphere.
So....in the short periods when there is a “hole”, more radiation comes through the atmosphere AND CREATES MORE OZONE!!!!
It’s a self healing process and cycle.
Man is incapable of spoiling it.
Just another enviro-hoax.
That the cfc's have any affect is pure speculation, because somewhere, someone bubbled some through a cloud of ozone in a test tube, and the ozone (gasp) chemically reacted, unstable as it is.
Ozone will react with aluminum siding. Perhaps aluminum should be banned, well, maybe just in california? LOL
I doubt there are many things that ozone will not react with.
“my theory is that the ozone hole is actually like a chimney, opening up to allow toxins??? to be released from the atmosphere”
The “ozone hole” is not an actual hole in the atmosphere that would allow gases escape. There is no “bubble” holding gas in the atmosphere, it is all held in by the planet’s gravity. The “ozone hole” would supposedly have let more UV radiation in to the atmosphere, by creating an area where it would not be reflected back into space as much as in the rest of the atmosphere.
grant money grant money grant money
Unfortunately for us, Susan Soloman is a bit of a biased "scientist" who does not listen to anyone with a contrary question. There may be a correlation between global cooling and the size of the ozone hole. Okay, not necessarily global cooling, but unusually cold winter temperatures in the upper atmosphere.
Furthermore, the predicted sizes of the ozone hole may not correlate with the reduction of CFCs in the upper atmosphere. Upper atmospheric chemistry is complex with many assumptions and limited data, with its attendant limited methodology and results.
Al Bore thinks you are a racist.
CFCs are to heavy to reach the stratosphere, ask some one with an “Earth science degree” about CFCs or FREON 12 rising instead of falling and they will burst into laughter.
Here is a hint. Both are much heaver than O2 or nitrogen or CO2, and as a result they fall to the ground.
And IMO DuPont transferred large sums of cash to EPA scientists and select congressmen.
In hindsight the whole thing sounds preposterous. It's a pretty imaginative scam but it didn't involve massive sums of money and regulation like AGW does. The scientists weren't yet quite the power-tripping socialists they are today.
“Bunch of Idiots,we had to change to a more expensive but less efficient gas,because of some slobbering enviro Pinheads who got it wrong,Plus a worthless Government that is filled with the same.
And IMO DuPont transferred large sums of cash to EPA scientists and select congressmen.”
Like DDT we got rid of a cheap very effective insecticide,in exchange for expensive ones that hurt us as well.
“we are held down to the planet by particle bombardment, the subatomic particles being attracted from space by our magnetic field”
So, if you stand under a lead plate you suddenly become weightless? Please...
since this has not been researched ( due to people believing in fairy tales out of the 16th century ) it is not fully explainable....but we have to assume these subatomic particles can and do penetrate everything......after all, they get through the ozone layer....
It is a self-regulating system that produces more ozone in response to higher energy from the Sun over the poles. It is for PROTECTION. Too MUCH energy from the SUN would kill everything, not ENOUGH would kill everything. Especially in an area where the SUN is visible for months in a row.
If the “subatomic particles” penetrate everything without colliding, how could they impart any momentum?
that would be one of the mysteries of the universe....not everything is understood or explainable by man.... :)
