Rush really needs to avoid lecturing on the topic of technology and particularly science. It does not matter if the topic is controversial or not, he routinely touts science that is as bad as the left-wing nutjobs he debates with. In the end, the whole thing is an embarrassment and certainly does not reflect favorably on the human race that both sides of an issue can be talking nonsense AND disagreeing. When he waxes "scientific", it is the only time I change the channel because it is unbearably bad. The left-wing pseudo-science is bad, but Rush is just contributing more noise rather than signal. Rush is not a scientist or even science educated, so I don't expect him to be knowledgeable; politics is his expertise, and he should stick with it.

Incidentally, the ozone hole is a very different thing from global warming, and unlike global warming which is genuinely debateable, the ozone hole issue is much clearer.

Then, and this is not criticism this is seeking answers, why then is the ozone hole in one location rather than all over? Wouldn't it conclude then that there's more involved than man-made pollution? If there were holes directly over industrialized areas, or even over areas near industrialized areas, I would be totally convinced, but I don't understand how with wind patterns and etc.(and trust me I'm no expert on the subject) would create the hole in the ozone layer over in the southern hemisphere. So I guess what I'm saying is, how can everything you say be truthful and everything he says (Rush) false, when neither side can truly account for how it happens...Perhaps thats what science needs to study first, then tell us what we need to do.
