-- Ozone Hole Data Still Doesn't Jibe --
Rough notes:
Maybe I haven't read the information correctly but...
Again... these are rough notes...

Now, in 2009, reading the information on the Ozone Hole-- the story given by Scientists (sarcastic laugh) doesn't mesh.

Susan Solomon is claimed to be one of the first to say that chlorofluorocarbons were responsible for the Ozone Hole in the Antarctic per Wikipedia

But truth says that a relationship between chlorofluorocarbons and atmospheric Ozone depletion was noted way back in 1974 by Sherry Rowland and Mario Molina at: http://www.wunderground.com

Solomon is also credited at Wikipedia as having discovered the Antarctic Ozone Hole... (maybe). But that contradicts http://www.theozonehole.com/ which says it was "...discovered in 1985 by British scientists Joesph Farman, Brian Gardiner, and Jonathan Shanklin of the British Antarctic Survey..."

Much of the history, story, storyline and data doesn't agree with each other.

Further reading

Then you have the gobblygook of conflicting stories again which say the hole was discovered in 1982 but not reported until 1985. The explanation mixes the whole story up. Apparently these 1982 scientists noticed the low Ozone-level readings, but supposedly the results seemed "improbable" so they ignored them for three years??? !!! ???

So let's see if I got this straight... they are down there (in the Antarctic) specifically to measure the Ozone, but when the readings are low, they...
  • ...recalibrate their instruments? Nope
  • ...conduct a second test to verify? Nope
  • ...craft a different type of test to test the first test's results? Nope
  • ...search and search until they get to the bottom of the mystery of the low readings? Nope
Apparently they declared the low readings "improbable" and drank beer until the supply ship picked them up. Since the "hole" in question covers virtually the complete Antarctic continent, I'm wondering what they did with all their free time. With all the readings being "improbable" there was nothing left for them to do. What? Did they wake up each morning, tap on the instrument dials a few times and ask the next guy over if there was any reading above the "improbable" mark? This is ridiculous! They weren't down there to study penguins or anything else! They were there specifically to find a hole, or thin-layer, or depletion of the ozone layer, and when their instruments supposedly read "yep, no ozone here" the "scientists" dismissed that as improbable? WTF?

Oh and the less cfc's we use, the bigger the hole is getting... Oh but Solomon and her cohorts have conveniently put the date for restoration of the ozone layer [Pseudo Quote] "...years and years in the future...". According to them, it will take until about 2050 before the ozone layer gets back to its 1980 size. That's real convenient-- fits right into their timeline of being some time AFTER their retirement or death. By their timeline (sorry Charlie!) they'll be long retired or dead when we can finally prove them wrong! But we've already seen this scam before.

I'll tell you what-- I've got a different version.
It was God who opened up the Ozone hole. But don't fret. God said that if you give me 50 million dollars a year, every year, he will reduce the size of the hole in 2050 and close it completely sometime after that. Start sending those checks folks! Oh by the way, in 2050 I'll be in my 90s or dead (Just like Susan Solomon who is near my age).

What these "scientist" won't tell you is that the ozone hole has always been there (over the Antarctic). Always!

Now this Solomon is hawking a Chicken Little story that the carbon-dioxide-global-warming will last for 1,000 years. (http://www.sciencentral.com)
