See my Thursday 13 this week? It began with,
1.) Freon. Betcha dollars to donuts all the brouhaha was just cos DupontÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s patent had run out. Whadda ya wanna bet?
Well, my fav science heretic, James Hogan, has more on the CFC/Ozone scam: Frog Fantasies. A sample:
In the March 1998 issue of The Energy Advocate (http://www.jamesphogan.com/bb/content/032697.shtml), Howard Hayden reports on a big flap that has been going on for some years over a certain species of frog that lives high in the Sierra Nevada mountains, whose population appears to have been declining. Investigators have jumped to attribute this to increased UV radiation due to ozone depletionÃ¢â‚¬â€although without presenting any actual data of a UV increase, which is assumed unquestioningly to have occurred because the prevailing dogma says so.
Yet after all the arguing over CFC breakdown, chemical reaction pathways, Antarctic “holes,” skin cancer, and so on, the one single fact that would follow if any of the scare stories had any merit, and before any effects could be experiencedÃ¢â‚¬â€a real, measured increase of ultraviolet at the Earth’s surfaceÃ¢â‚¬â€has never been observed.
