Whatever happened to the hole in the Ozone layer that was going to wipe out civilization 20-30 years ago! Just another hoax so politicians can get votes and scientists can get grants.

The governments of the world got together in Monteal, and created "The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer", which is a protocol to the Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer. After 25 years of global cooperation, it is working.
Yes, WE DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT! ...

There are of course natural cycles; these are pretty well understood. None have a frequency of years which is the time scale we are seeing now.
In fact we are probably in a cooling period (frequency 10000years) now, so if you take this into account the warmimg is even worse!

This is a topic of contention, as our records do not go far enough back to be able to definitively answer this question. When we look at the current environmental patterns such as earthquakes, cyclones and bush fires (for example) it appears to have intensified and become more frequent.

It is also basic science that if you add CO2 to the atmosphere, you change its thermal characteristics. It was NOT observations which led to the discovery of global warming, but the well established hypothesis which is generally confirmed in the data. And we do have long records, in ice cores, going back thousands of years.

Really people what you believe or don't believe the end result is that if we were to meet our commitments the change to the situation would be .1 of 1% that would be akin to looking for a pimple on an elephant's arse and unless they can guarantee wind and solar power will be 24/7 forget yes i agree making our current energy sources cleaner
