    Enormous Hole in Ozone

    As if the Virus wasn't enough...

    Enormous Hole in the Ozone Appears Above Arctic in Rare Atmospheric Phenomenon

    ...a hole stretching from Hudson Bay to Russia's northern Arctic islands.

    Images from NASA's Arctic Ozone Watch show how the hole has been growing since the start of March, with ozone levels dropping significantly. Blue and purple colors show where there is the least amount of ozone, while reds and yellows indicate where levels are higher.

    Ozone is a gas made of three oxygen atoms. It is created naturally in the stratosphere, a layer of Earth's atmosphere that sits between seven and 25 miles above the surface of the planet. Ultraviolet rays from the sun break oxygen molecules into atoms. It is highly reactive and acts as a shield, protecting life on Earth from harmful UV rays.
    It's almost like all our chickens are coming home to roost at once.

    The cause? Cold.

    Natural ozone depletion is driven by cold temperatures....John Pyle, an atmospheric scientist at the U.K.'s University of Cambridge, told Newsweek over email: "The low temperature condition (temperatures less than about 195k) in the Arctic are much less common. Interestingly, the Antarctic ozone hole last year was quite small; temperatures in the low stratosphere were higher than normal. In contrast, this Arctic winter/spring has seen a very strong lower stratospheric polar vortex and persistent, widespread very low temperatures. So, it's the meteorological conditions that set the condition—and this year's Arctic has been exceptional."

    Sounds to me like we need some more global warming.

    Probably not, since the unusually strong PV this year is most likely another byproduct of AGW.

    LOL there have been ozone holes at the poles since the 1980's. So how many people have died from that?

    Have you looked into that?

    Do you know what the research says?


    There are extensive reports on this, primarily focusing on the two most obvious health effects of ozone depletion. Do you know what those two effects are?

    I;m guessing you are as clueless about this as most of the other topics in this section.

    I wont bother to post the data, because its clear you wont bother to learn.

    LOL claims to have data of people dying from the ozone holes, but makes excuses not to post it... LIE!

    I don't think this is much to worry about. We already regulate CFCs, and a little bit of variation in the size of the ozone hole is normal.

    The article makes it clear this is not a cause for concern.
