    Yea, sure from the same talking heads that brought you millions of climate refugees, a new ice age, the ozone layer disappearing, and a plethora of other alarmist nonsense that never proved right.

    You’re entitled to your opinion on some of those things, but you are wrong about the ozone layer. Through world-wide cooperation in the lessened use of CFCs, it is now repairing itself, although it will take about 50 years before we are sure. You might not believe any link confirming this, but here is one, anyway:

    ^Well, you might ask a few Aussies or Kiwis about that ozone hole, climate refugees are very real, in human and animal and plant populations, and changes in laws around the world to change the impact models from Man, have changed the models, just as science established and predicted, when environmental legislation was signed, by NIXON.

    That “verge” started about the same time as man started farming.

    “Well, hominids SEEMED like a good idea,” said the Earth Life Project Manager to his staff. They watched in detached bemusement as the last of humanity disappeared from the planet below, an experiment gone terribly awry. “Next time, let’s give sentience to some species of rodent – maybe some well-behaved beaver type.”

    The physical works of Man were already half crumbled to dust. “Too much intelligence is apparently not a survival trait. It’s a shame, though – those foolish naked apes almost reached the stars.”

    A Bach organ fugue played soaringly in the background, certain types of music being the only human innovation worth saving.

    I heard, when G_d handed his Creation in, he only got a C-.


    Of course, they graded much too quickly back then. I don’t think G_d’s creation turned out to be as durable as the project specifications required it to be.

    If NOAA told me the ozone layer was repairing itself I’d believe it. EPA stating it-not so much.

    Alarmist that some like yourself are deaf to. So the fire burns the house isn’t evacuated. You can’t see it so it must not exist. Did you know that the oceans are practically deserts now compared to what they were in the 19th Century? Imagine so many whales in one place you could smell their breath from the shore line. You can’t do that now. We aren’t just killing off species every day, we are wrecking whole ecosystems.

    You do know that we are like no other creature on this Earth? We can change it and have done since we killed the first predator with a rock then spear then bow then gun.

    It has been noticed that for the first time octopi off of Capri have lived long enough to pass on their knowledge of tool using to the young ones. Never seen before.

    There is an idea that if one too many creatures goes extinct that it might set off a chain reaction that knocks off the other animals, including us.

    The “hole” in the ozone layer is just as big today as it was before CFC’s were banned. The problem is that science doesn’t have the answers to mega problems, at least not yet. But scientists have the hubris to believe they do.

    @Enoki

    After CFC’s were banned the “hole” in the ozone did heal. If we had continued with CFC’s we would be even worse of climatologically too.

    Humans are the most dangerous animal on the planet.
