    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.

    @Enoki

    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.

    “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.

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

    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.

    Humans are the most dangerous animal on the planet.

    LOL…. your words :

    “although it will take about 50 years before we are sure

    So …. it’s just your opinion given the current data, right?

    LOL … read a couple of links:

    The way we seem to heading, science will soon be decided by popular referenda and the ozone hole will never be healed. This is solid science, and not subject to my opinion.
