2012 The Hottest Year on Record...

Companies and governments greatly reduced the amount of CFCs they produced and the ozone layer started to repair itself. The ozone hole still exists over Antarctica though. Pretty cool how changes in our behavior can have an effect on the environment.

Actually during this time of year, Antarctica receives a good deal of sunlight is received so stable O2 is formed. The layer is thinned over the Arctic region right now due to longer periods of darkness during the northern winter.

I always laugh at companies that denied CFCs damage until they had secured a patent on a replacement compound. Any asthmatics here take albuteral? HUGE proponent of the CFC ban.

May be true, may not.

All I know is it's a fantastic way to control energy.

Control the energy and the guns....wonder what could happen?

gun control is small potatoes. Want to really control the world? Control the water.

Here's another one... remember how we used to claim how we were destroying the ozone? What happened with that?

Am I to assume it was all bull poo because you don't know "what happened with that"?

Educate your mind with the following links.

note: I saw most of this same info on a recent trip the Air and Space museum, several times we made the statements, we could just read all this on the internet. lol however i enjoy the museum experience.

You can't control the pussy... You can only hope to contain it.

People have been saying this for hundreds of years.

Until we get to that point, the energy and the guns are the most important if you want to control the masses.

Climate change deniers are right up there with anti-vaccine people for showing how bad science education has gotten in this country.

There is no doubt that climate change is real....the part that most of us don't really buy is the part about us/humans causing it.

The Earth climate has been changing for millions of years, it didn't start in the 70's.

The "most" not referring to anyone remotely associated with science of course.

Its not really that complicated. CO2 concentrations have been steadily rising since the industrial revolution, and CO2 in the atmosphere acts as a greenhouse gas and warms the planet (among other things). Its a pretty well understood mechanism, without it the planet would be too cold for most life to exist.

The question is whether we should do something about it. Its highly unlikely that anything catastrophic will happen, though some people will definitely be moving. Some places will actually benefit from a warmer planet (Russia and Canada for example)

Will we do something about it? Probably not

warmer isn't necessarilly better. a serious change in weather patters could completely f*ck the worlds food supply... there are a number of catastrophes that could arise from this situation. thankfully, as citizens of the first world... we just create the problems, we don't have to deal with the repercussions.
