Jackdaw- You state your case well. I will look into the ozone thing, but I remain skeptical about the configuration of the magnetic field allowing more reaction with CFC's and the ozone later. many western nations have suppossedly banned the use of DFC's, but there are still many who haven't. Mexico is one. I suggest that perhaps CFC's excacerbated the problem (to what extent is still debatable) - nevertheless- when in doubt play it safe- but the ozone layer perhaps naturally expand and contracts. We just don't know yet.
The arguement that only US scientists argue against global warming is not exactly true. Let us turn that one around. According to you, why are all non-US scientists blaming human interaction, and mainly the US? Could it be that these non-US scientists are in the employ of their respective governments? I smell money here! Throttle the US with it's environmental restrictions (which we have more of than any other country), but exempt us so we can gain economically over the US and destroy the Yankee dollar! There are many others. One from England -an admitted environmentalist- (can't remember his name right now) went after another fellow who argued aginst his and others' ideas concerning global warming. After intensive study I found out these others were right! He still believes in global warming as I perhaps do, but to what extent that human interaction is the main culprit is ludicrous. Our interaction might play some part, but to what extent it is still impossible to tell. So I say... let's clean up our act nevertheless; not because we're at fault, but because it's the right thing to do.
Latest report of junk science! Guess what? We now have 15% less oxigen on Earth! Well, why then are there still so many atheletes setting incredible records today? Fact- we breathe out most of the oxigen we breath in. (high school biology class, remember?)
Fact- tree huggers have won ther case. No tree thinning, no management of under brush clean up (might destroy habitats for many creatures). Now, we have rampant forest fires which cannot be contained. Too much fuel feeding the fires. This is just as stupid as PETA breaking into a lab and freeing lab animals who have never learned how to forage for themselves. Most of them die with a few days.
Let's slam the US more, but let's also remember China, who cuts 25 million trees a year, for what? ... chopsticks. This is a fact! How about the juck Oriental medicine which uses endagered species as ingredients for their "cures"? Blame the US for that one too!
Every living thing on the Earth causes polution. We can do our part to make it better. But it has to be everyone: not exempting many countries and blaming the US.
I laugh at both sides. Example- Mrs. A uses plastic bags at the store because she doesn't want to use paper bags, to save the trees. Mrs. B Use paper bags because plastic doesn't decompose readily and messes up the environment (let's not tell her there is bacteria which eats plastic). Then there's Mrs. C who solves the problem by using her own bags from home, made from burlap (Hmmm! Another environmental usage.) But she can't carry as much so she shops often and buys smaller container items... which uses up more resources. It seems we just can't win! Someone can allways successfully point to where Mrs. A,B and C are hurting the environment. And they are right!
So what do we do? Let's kill off the human race, starting with the hated Americans because it's primarilly their fault. With the human race gone the Earth will survive and thrive. No more of those pesky skiers who buy skis with wood in them, and plastics, etc! No more SUV's. No more using electricity for chair lifts (How wastful! Use so much electricity to get on a chair, ride up to the top and slide down just to get backon the chair again!)
So, let's do ourselves in! ............. NAAAAAW!
