The Sky Is Falling! The Latest Nonsense From Climate Alarmists Defies Belief

The (not so) new thing to be afraid of that you caused and only socialism can fix is a gigantic “unexpected” ozone hole. It’s massive. It is a recycled idea. And it is also more meaningless fearmongering by the climate elites and their “journalism” stooges.

From RCSB.

“preliminary reports showing that ozone depletion levels over equatorial regions are already endangering large populations therein, and the associated UV radiation reaching the regions was far greater than expected”.

Are you adequately frightened? If you survived the ozone hole scares of the 80s, maybe not. They were BS too. But why not give it another try. There have been several new generations since indoctrinated with the fake climate fear. Are they ready to give up heat, electricity, motor fuels, the internet, and mobility?

Don’t be. Here’s a response that looked like some actual ozone science (reformatted).

UV radiation converts oxygen into ozone, which decomposes back to oxygen, releasing the energy as infra red. It is a process of down conversion of UV to infra red in which ozone is a bi-product and nothing more. This is the same silliness which imagines that gases ‘block’ radiation.

Let us be clear. Ozone absorption band is indeed in the UV, so it absorbs UV and either decomposes back to oxygen, or re-radiates the UV. It does not ‘block’ it. This is the same fundamental error which underpins the ‘greenhouse effect’.

Kirchoff’s Law (which is simply a re-statement of the Law of Conservation of Energy) requires what is absorbed by a body to be re-radiated, possibly with a different spectrum, but the quantity of power must remain the same. Unless the gas is ionised, it will not reflect.

This is folklore, the fact that it has been a thought habit for forty years does not render it valid. It is Canals on Mars and Piltdown man all over again.

A reduction in solar flux is more likely the cause (from comment further down), and you abandoning an SUV for a dirtier EV (for example) won’t make any difference. Well, not to the Ozone, unless you are convinced the problem is emissions, and screw the science. In which case your EV will be more trouble than the combustion engine that costs less and has a smaller total lifetime carbon footprint than that coal-fired POS. At least until your “leaders” tell you, you can no longer charge it or they price you out of the electricity market.

All genuine problems we can see coming our way today, with or without the ozone hole mythology.

And look on the bright side. If you leave your rechargeable EV outside, critters will eventually turn it into a habitat and reclaim it for planet earth.
