    Whatever Happened to the Hole in the Ozone Layer? - Yahoo! News

    One very interesting thing

    Interestingly, recent studies have shown that the size of the ozone hole affects the global temperature. Closing the ozone hole actually speeds up the melting of the polar ice caps, according to a 2009 study from Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research.

    Yes, the healing of the Ozone Hole will increase the temperature in the Southern Hemisphere. Just as the lessoning of the industrial sulphates increased the warming of the Northern Hemisphere.

    However, the UV that the ozone stopped weakons and kills single celled organisms close to the surface in our oceans. Weakoning them at the same time that the increasing acidity from the CO2 level in the atmosphere is doing the same.

    The healing of the Ozone Hole is a good thing. Now we have to address the CO2 emissions.


    Ozone hole healing could cause further climate warming

    ScienceDaily (Jan. 26, 2010) — The hole in the ozone layer is now steadily closing, but its repair could actually increase warming in the southern hemisphere, according to scientists at the University of Leeds.

    First we need to prove the CO2 ocean acidification theory and the paleo data shows it inaccurate to say the least. I would call it more like bullshit to sell AGW...

    Oldrocks every time you try and pass off theory as fact I am going to call you on it.... We went round and round on this a few weeks ago and you and all your little trollkins finally gave up.... You know its bullshit, so do I so stop lying....

    Let's leave everything in the hands of Republican Scientists.
