I logged in this morning and Yahoo Insider graciously popped this article onto my screen:
The Downside to the Recovery of the Ozone Hole
While the hole in the Earth's protective ozone layer is slowly healing; its recovery might have a downside scientists say: Climate change could change wind patterns and send ozone from high in the atmosphere down to the surface, where it is a major component of smog....
Sick yet? Now I'm not one who puts up with this crap much anymore, so of course, I scrolled to the bottom to comment, sure that the comment section would be full of a bunch of enviro-nazi, greenie-freaks lending support to the author.
Boy was I surprised and pleased! Americans seem to be waking up to this hoax. Here are some of the better comments.
- HOT, COLD, HOT, COLD.......AROUND AND AROUND IT GOES....ARE ANY OF YOU GETTING DIZZY AND SICK OF THIS CRAP YET? IT'S TIME TO STOP FIGHTING BETWEEN OURSELVES AND TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY......
- Make up your minds you buffoons. Is the hole in the Ozone Layer a good thing or a bad thing? The so-called experts never cease to amaze or appall me with their jibberish.
- We'd burn in 5 minutes without it? I wonder why Antarctica hasn't melted completely away by now if the hole is centered over it?
- This global climate change B.S. is over the top. Whomever is responsible for drumming up this crap should be put away (as in crazy house) and never let out.
- Wake up and read the emails! Global warming is a hoax and the climate has been changing since Earth's creation. This is just another way the power-hungry elites are trying to control the people and strip us of our money and our freedom.
- Just so I get it right ... the story for this week is Ozone bad? Or is it Ozone good? I don't know if I should recharge my electric car with coal powered energy or not. Maybe I'll just go out to the cow pastures and feed the cows something that will help them pass more gas.
I'm so confused. I have to seek the counsel of the Green Gods and their patron Saint Al Gore.
- I am sure that if the climate started to cool scientists would still find a way to milk the public out of billions of dollars to fund research on how it is the end of the world.
It doesn't matter what happens, doomsayers of all stripes will try to profit from fear. First it was Malthus, then it was global cooling, then DDT, then over-population again, then it was ozone depletion, then it was global warming, SARS, Y2K, now it is the ozone layer is healing. The environmental specualtion track record is not good.
Of course, there were some idiots in there too. But it was refreshing to see so much common sense!
