    Well, if the banning of CFCs solved the problem, how is it that the ozone hole hasn't been permanently fixed?

    See how you fail to answer the question?

    CFCs were banned 25 years ago, yet the ozone hole still comes and goes....Howz that happen?

    G'head and launch another ad hom that doesn't address the legit question, dickweed.

    CFCs built up in the atmosphere for decades, slowly rising to the top, so why would you imagine that a ban (that is not fully effective, BTW) would solve the problem instantly?

    Repairing The Ozone Layer
    EPA

    (government publication - free to reproduce)
    (excerpts)
    Scientists have found "holes" in the ozone layer high above the Earth. The 1990 Clean Air Act has provisions for fixing the holes, but repairs will take a long time.

    Ozone in the stratosphere, a layer of the atmosphere nine to 31 miles above the Earth, serves as a protective shield, filtering out harmful sun rays, including a type of sunlight called ultraviolet B. Exposure to ultraviolet B has been linked to development of cataracts (eye damage) and skin cancer.

    In the mid-1970s, scientists suggested that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) could destroy stratospheric ozone. CFCs were widely used then as aerosol propellants in consumer products such as hair sprays and deodorants, and for may uses in industry. Because of concern about the possible effects of CFCs on the ozone layer, in 1978 the U.S. government banned CFCs as propellants in aerosol cans.

    Since the aerosol ban, scientists have been measuring the ozone layer. A few years ago, and ozone hole was found above Antarctica, including the area of the South Pole. This hole, which has been appearing each year during the Antarctic winter (our summer), is bigger than the continental United States. More recently, ozone thinning has been found in the stratosphere above the northern half of the United States; the hole extends over Canada and up into the Arctic regions (the area of theNorth Pole). The hole was first found only in winter and spring, but more recently has continued into summer. Between 1978 and 1991, there was a 4-5 percent loss of ozone in the stratosphere over the United States; this is a significant loss of ozone. Ozone holes have also been found over northern Europe.

    What could a thinned-out ozone layer do to people's lives? There could be more skin cancers and cataracts. Scientists are looking into possible harm to agriculture, and there is already some evidence of damage to plant life in Antarctic seas.

    Evidence that the ozone layer is dwindling let 93 nations, including the major industrialized nations, to agree to cooperate in reducing production and use of chemicals that destroy the ozone layer. As it became clear the ozone layer was thinning even more quickly than first thought, the agreement was revised to speed up the phase-out of ozone-destroying chemicals.

    Unfortunately, it will be a long time before we see the ozone layer repaired. Because of the ozone-destroying chemicals already in the stratosphere and those that will arrive within the next few years, ozone destruction will likely continue for another twenty years.





    Oh, is it time for the "ad homs" now.....OK......hey Screwball, your posts are idiotic nonsense and you are a retarded nutjob.....how's that?....both 'ad homish' and very accurate at the same time.....LOL.....you poor deluded cretin....

    The Deniers are prolly angry at the planet because they can't sell it lock, stock, & barrel right from underneath us. Many of them, like skookerasbil, are obvious Randians. ;)

    IOW, banning CFCs didn't work, so wackadoodle nutbars like you need to move the goalposts and try to implement more laws/rules/regulations/taxes that won't work.

    All in a day's work for the envirofascists. :thup:
