Hole In The Ozone Layer Shrinks To Smallest Size On Record

From The Daily Caller NASA image/ screen grab Jason Hopkins Immigration and politics reporter October 22, 2019 12:18 PM ET The hole in the ozone layer shrank to its smallest size since scientists began recording it, NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Monday. The ozone layer hole, which roughly sits above Antarctica,…

Ozone treaty taking a bite out of US greenhouse gas emissions

Public Release: 14-Aug-2017 American Geophysical Union From Eurekalert WASHINGTON D.C. — The Montreal Protocol, the international treaty adopted to restore Earth’s protective ozone layer in 1989, has significantly reduced emissions of ozone-depleting chemicals from the United States. In a twist, a new study shows the 30-year old treaty has had a major side benefit of…

Cowtan & Way off course

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley This time last year, as the honorary delegate from Burma, I had the honor of speaking truth to power at the Doha climate conference by drawing the attention of 193 nations to the then almost unknown fact that global warming had not happened for 16 years. The UN edited the…

Busted messaging: CFC's cause warming AND cooling

From the make up your freaking minds department comes this oopsy juxtaposition of alarmist messaging. In an attempt to explain “the pause”, researchers are now grasping for explanations: Human actions that were not intended to limit the greenhouse effect have had large effects on slowing climate change. The two world wars, the Great Depression and…

Study says global warming caused by CFCs interacting with cosmic rays, not carbon dioxide

From the University of Waterloo, an extraordinary claim. While plausible, due to the fact that CFC’s have very high GWP numbers, their atmospheric concentrations compared to CO2 are quite low, and the radiative forcings they add are small by comparison to CO2. This may be nothing more than coincidental correlation. But, I have to admit,…

A paper unifying cosmic ray interaction, CFC's ozone, and warming

On Cosmic-Ray-Driven Electron Reaction Mechanism for Ozone Hole and Chlorofluorocarbon Mechanism for Global Climate Change Qing-Bin Lu, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Waterloo Abstract Numerous laboratory measurements have provided a sound physical basis for the cosmic-ray driven electron induced reaction (CRE) mechanism of halogen-containing molecules for the ozone hole. And observed spatial and…

Oh, Canada!

From Penn State: Environment Canada cuts threaten science, international agreements Recent cuts to the scientific workforce of Environment Canada, a government agency responsible for meteorological services and environmental research, threaten scientific research related to the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere and pollution in the lower atmosphere, according to environmental scientists in the U.S. These…
