    Have you seen the latest issue of Discover,
    Patrick? The cover article is about how one
    consequence of global warming which is not
    unlikely is that the massive amount of melting
    freshwater from the Artic ice cap from
    increased temperatures may be enough to
    shut down the Gulf Stream, which could result
    in another Ice Age, much worse than the Little
    Ice Age which ended a couple hundred years
    ago. The article is not up on the website yet,
    so anyone interested in a good read should
    check it out at the store.

    but but but sem...Global Warming is just a theory, Its not REALLY happening!!!!

    WASHINGTON The ozone hole over Antarctica is markedly smaller this year than in the last few years and has split in two, government scientists reported Monday.

    The so-called "hole," actually an area of thinner than normal ozone, was measured at 6 million square miles (15.6 million square kilometers) in September. That compares with around 9 million square miles (23.4 million square kilometers) on September measurements over the last six years, according to researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and National Aeronautics and Space Agency.

    While ozone at ground level is considered a pollutant, the layer of ozone high in the stratosphere is vital to life because it blocks dangerous radiation coming from the sun. Thinning of the ozone layer could lead to a rise in skin cancer, experts warn. Aerosols and other chemicals are blamed for the thinning, and treaties banning those ingredients are expected to help the layer recover over time.

    *****This year's improvement was attributed to warmer than normal temperatures around the edge of the polar vortex,****** or circular wind pattern that forms annually in the stratosphere over Antarctica, according to Paul Newman, a lead ozone researcher at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. .

    Paul Newman? How cute.

    i fail to see the connection to global warming, unless you are saying that global warming is good because it increases ozone levels...?

    I think he was saying that the warming of the ice caps is repairing the hole in the ozone layer. I don't particularly believe in global warming.

By patrick on Tuesday, October 1, 2002 - 05:13 pm:

    No one knows if the hole is "repaired" or in a state of morphing to something worse.

    the dramatic nature of its performance in a years time is plenty evidence to conclude that whatever is happening is quite volatile. whats to say it wont reopen 10x bigger next year??

    anyone who cites this as evidence that global warming doesnt exist is pretty damn foolish.

    Maybe that ozone hole should park itself over the North America. I think we'd get serious about climate change then...

    According to a Japanese study, the ozone
    hole over the Antarctic may slam shut within
    four decades. Tatsuya Nagashima of the
    National Institute for Environmental Studies in
    Ibaraki simulated the gases seeping into the
    ozone layer, 10 to 15 miles high in the
    stratosphere. He found that declining levels of
    chlorine from recently banned
    chlorofluorocarbons should enable the ozone
    to return to early-1980s levels by 2040. But
    another study, conducted by physicist Drew
    Shindell of NASA Goddard Institure for Space
    Studies in New York City, suggests that
    recovery of the ozone layer will be delayed 10
    to 20 years by rising levels of two gases -
    methane and nitrous oxide- that also
    contribute to greenhouse warming. At low
    latitudes, methane in the stratosphere breaks
    down into hydrogen oxides, which attack
    ozone. Nitrous oxide can decompose to form
    ozone-eating nitrogen oxides. "In 60 or 70
    years, there should be no more depletion
    from chlorine, but since there will be all these
    greenhouse gases, it will not look like it used
    to in the 1970s," Shindell says. Fortunately,
    the ozone layer should still be robust enough
    to provide protection from solar ultraviolet

    look! An action we took to slow global
    warming and help the ozone hole may have
    worked! And conservatives are using this as
    evidence that there wasn't a problem in the
    first place!

    Cows and people who eat beans and curry are the main causes of global warming!
