Vanishing Forests, Disappearing Clouds: O2 and O3 depletion + criminally-counterproductive remediationQuicklink submitted by Michael Rose Permalink
(more...) (less...) ,
|When Al Gore was still a Senator he pointed out that there are six times as many chlorine molecules in the air today as there were 40 years ago. It is not just the proliferation of chlorine that's causing problems, it is also the simultaneous, wanton depletion of oxygen on this planet by fossil fuel burning and the destruction of our forests. On December 11, 1974, a Du Pont official told a Congressional Committee that his company would halt production as soon as it received 'credible scientific data that CFCs posed 'a threat to health....' In the face of incredible scientific evidence that not only CFCs but also a spectrum of other chlorine products cause incredible damage to the Stratosphere, Du Pont and other multi-nationals still have not stopped production 40 years later. They've merely transferred the manufacture of their life-destroying chemicals to other countries.|
