The ticker-tape parade for climate scientists has been cancelled

Most skin cancers are a result of exposure to the ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Ultraviolet rays also lead to the formation of cataracts (clouding of the lens of the eye) and pterygium (tissue growth on the surface of the eye), both of which can impair vision. Because UV rays don’t penetrate deeply into the body, they wouldn’t be expected to cause cancer in internal organs.

The ozone layer is a region of Earth's stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation and thus shields us from ultraviolet rays. However, there has been a hole in the ozone layer that has been floating over Antarctica for millions of years. It was never any problem until in 1985, when climate scientists discovered it. The climate scientists claimed that the hole in the ozone layer was caused by human made clorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, a gaseous compound used as refrigerants, cleaning solvents and aerosol propellants. The hole in the ozone layer was going to grow until it threatened to end life on earth. In 1990, Congress amended the Clean Air Act, with provisions for protecting the ozone layer by stopping the use of CFCs. This CFC ban has cost many billions of dollars.

Ozone is created when oxygen molecules in the stratosphere absorb energy from the sun's ultraviolet rays. In other words, it takes sunshine to create ozone. Antarctica gets no sunshine for 6 months a year and very little sunshine for the other 6 months. And even during the summer, the sun never rises very much above the horizon. So no sunlight is going through the stratosphere directly above Antarctica—ever. It is this lack of sunshine that creates the ozone hole. This is why the ozone hole never spreads beyond Antarctica. CFCs have nothin to do with it.

But, why should you believe anybody who is not a real scientist? So, let me quote from a book written by a real scientist, Dancing Naked in the Mine Field by Kary Mullis. Kary was awarded the Nobel Prize and the Japan Prize in Chemistry for his invention of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The quotes are from pages 108-109 and 117-118.

"Beyond the lack of scientific evidence, it makes no sense anyhow that we could destroy ozone in the upper atmosphere. If a hole in the ozone layer appeared somehow, here's what would happen: The UV rays from the sun would come through the hole and strike the Earth's atmosphere, where they would be absorbed by the miles-thick layer of oxygen surrounding the Earth. Then it would make more ozone. When the UV rays from the sun combine with oxygen, they form ozone." The ozone thus formed absorbs UV light, which continues to come from the sun, and prevents it from penetrating any farther into the oxygen below that has not been converted to ozone. That is why we have oxygen to breathe down here and ozone in the upper atmosphere. If all the nations of the world agreed to spend all of their money to eliminate the ozone layer—they couldn't do it. It can't go away unless all the oxygen in the atmosphere were to go away, and then, guess what—we couldn't breathe, untill the green plants made some more. The ozone in the upper atmosphere regulates itself. If you measure a drop in some variable like ozone, it doesn't mean it is going to be gone. Put a stick on the beach marking the edge of the last wave while the tide is coming in, then come back in an hour with another stick. You'll notice that the tide has come in ten feet in an hour, but if you predict that in a year the tide would have come in 87,000 feet, you'd be dead wrong."

"Politicians don't know anything about scientific things. They just want to look like they do. Somebody has to advise them. Who are those advisors? It's an important question because those people—who are always having to come up with emminent disasters that can be prevented by governmental projects—are manipulating you. They are parasites with degrees..."

And if you don't know who Kary Mullis is, let this quote from Ted Koppel of ABC News—Nightline explain it to you.

"Take all the MPV's from professional baseball, basketball, and football. Throw in your dozen favorite movie stars and a half dozen rock stars for good measure, add all the television anchorpeople now on the air, and collectively, we have not affected the current good or the future welfare of mankind as much as Kary Mullis."
