Here's a cute cartoon about the Ozone Hole that everyone was so worried about 10 years ago. We solved that problem - oh wait, it's bigger now due to colder than normal Antarctic temperatures!
This was another politicization of science, like global warming, that created lots of costs to replace CFC's. But, at least we eliminated the cause of ozone depletion. Oh, wait....China is still making CFC's.
I guess if we sign the Kyoto Treaty then we will have solved Global Warming and the religious environmentalists can go to there next cause. Um, but China is not included in Kyoto.
Never mind.........I forgot that the real threat to the world is the US and the wrath of the religious environmentalists has nothing to do with the environment.
