The theory worked out by Molina and verified by Rowland does not allow for a low-limit to destruction as the effect is catalytic and there is no assumed loss of the catalyst proffered; I have boxes of studies and research on this subject.

Not one human death has yet been blamed or can be blamed on the loss of atmospheric ozone.

For every four molecules of oxygen, the sun can ionize three ozone molecules; since there are roughly 210,000PPM of O2 in the atmosphere a slice of 350PPM gives an efficiency rating of about .00167 - this implies that there is an upper-limit to the creation of ozone and allows for the constant breaking down of the unstable molecule.

For those couple of days when the ozone levels are expected or known to be low maybe the local cable system could rerun some Father Knows Best shows.

And let's be quite clear to any reading this reply that I never claimed or even pretended to claim that there had been any. (And with a proper nod to the dangers of spurious correlation, it should also be noted that sun-happy places like Australia have experienced significant increases in the rate of skin cancer. There's an ongoing public relations campaign in Australia to make the people practice solar exposure safety for just this reason.)
