    Remember the big scare of the 1980s, when we were told that between all the fluorocarbons in products like hairspray and deodorant, a big hole was developing in the Ozone layer and the entire population of the world was about get cancer at the very same time?

But have no fear the Ozone environmentalists haven't lost their life's mission, they can just become global warming moonbats. A new study claims that by closing the Ozone hole we are...

The fluorocarbons were removed and since 2002 the ozone layer has been closing and the earth stopped warming. Qing Bin-Lu, a professor of physics and astronomy at Canada's University of Waterloo took a look at the interaction between cosmic rays and chlorofluorocarbons and predicts that global warming has disappeared, maybe for the next 50 years This peer-reviewed paper was published in the prestigious online journal Physics Reports, Lu, who holds a Ph.D....

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, said in July that it had found the "smoking gun" that caused the space shuttle Columbia to break apart as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere on Feb. 1: a piece of foam that had peeled off the external fuel tank and struck the shuttle's wing 1 minute and 22 seconds after liftoff. But many experts looking at the tragedy that killed seven astronauts say there is a deeper cause. They say that the metaphorical smoking gun should be painted green. Because of demands that the agency help to front for...
