The Ozone Hole is shrinking – according to Scientific reports released in 2016! In fact, it appears that the main reason it is shrinking is because of the natural global temperature changes, ie, warmer temperatures in the polar regions cause the hole to shrink and rising temperatures in the stratosphere also play a significant role. This would indicate that over thousands of years as the earth’s temperatures rise and cool, holes develop and disappear as a common reaction. According to NASA.
Of course, the MSM would liken the decrease to the Montreal Protocol which called for the decreased use of CFC gases such as those coming from spray bottles… However, there is absolutely no evidence to support this theory, instead scientists are pointing to the natural occurrences of global weather shifts as the most significant contributing factor.
According to ‘climate predictions’, the hole was slated to return to its 1980’s size sometime between 2050 and 2070. However, as of 2017 it is already its 1988 size, once again proving that science is at best – a theory. The Montreal Protocol which was signed in 1987 and initiated in 1989, was only sporadically implemented across the globe, had multiple phase out time frames, and did not include HCFC’s until 2015 when the Ozone Hole had already dwarfed in size. In addition, not all countries banned the use of CFC’s; China, India and South Korea still proliferate their use.
Du Pont began producing hydrofluorocarbons as an alternative to the phasing out of CFC’s. However, it was later discovered that these HFC’s contribute to Global Warming and they became the target of the Kyoto Protocol which sought to ban their use worldwide Unfortunately, they had already become mass produced and were a market source around the globe. So, a lean period was initiated in which phase outs were established to be in full force as of 2020 for developed countries and 2030 for developing countries…
But the phaseout hasn’t happened. In fact, the largest producers include; Coca-Cola, DuPont, Honeywell, ThermoKing and Carrier Transicold. Problem? Of course, the alternatives that have been put in service to phaseout the HFC’s are also now considered unsafe… But they haven’t been banned because there really isn’t an alternative that has been created that is considered ‘safe’ although everything is delisted via a Climate Protocol so as to create a phaseout sometime in the future – maybe in 3 or 4 decades… but in the meantime we’ve already discovered that the natural variation in climate is fixing the problem without Scientists involvement.
Gee Whilakers! Bottom line?
We have replaced the CFC’s that were thought to have ‘caused’ the Ozone Hole with a number of alternate compounds including HFC’s and HCFC’s and R’s and Q’s galore, only to discover that all the alternates are also causing Global Warming and the depletion of the Ozone layer, only to find that everything is super-naturally fixing itself – anyway!
I’m sure glad Science fixed all those problems for us! Cause I sure don’t know w hat we would do otherwise…
In the meantime, not to be left out of the loop of god status, the EPA announced in 2015 that they were going to call for a phaseout of all HFC’s as a part of Obama’s Climate Change Plan of Action. I guess they didn’t get the memo that the Ozone Hole was already fixing itself. In the meantime, a report issued by the UN in 2016 stated that HFC use in ALL countries across the globe is expected to rise significantly over the coming decades averaging about 16% per country.
I guess NO ONE got the memo. But hey, the Ozone Hole continues to contract. FYI: the UN has an Ozone branch whose purpose is to study Ozone and to ask pretty please will everyone voluntarily reduce useage…
