Weather Underground: Skeptics vs. the Ozone Hole

URL:www.wunderground.com/
  • Interesting reading
  • A bit esoteric
Remember back in the 80s when the first concerns about ozone depletion became public knowledge? Remember also how critics (industry and government) attacked the research until the ozone hole over Antarctica started growing? Fortunately, the Montreal Protocol in 1987 led to rapid phase-out of ozone-destroying chemicals and a slowing of the damage. Read all about it at this informative Weather Underground site and, while you’re at it, compare it to the war of words going on today about greenhouse gas emissions and global warming and see if you find a parallel or not. An important site about an important ecological topic.
