    I think the spray cans, like hairspray, that released the harmful ozone-destroying gas, got rid of that ingredient. I don't remember what it was called, it's been so long since that was a problem. The ozone hole has been shrinking ever since we stopped using the stuff.

    Chlorofluorocarbons or CFC's.

    Shows you what the world can do when well informed and mobilized to solve a serious problem.

    That stuff works! I used the tape on 4 cracks in a preformed, 150 gallon fish pond in my yard. No leaks, had 4 cracks from 1 to 2 inches long. Plus, with tape, no propellant!

    Why bring that back up after all these years?
    Pelosi and her team of performing clowns will now be all over it, blaming Trump and trying to use it to get him out of office.

    Trump should use the stuff on his staff to prevent leaks.

    Yep, the so-called hole in the ozone was caused by R-12 freon and hairspray.....and the hole was letting out the Earth's retained climate heat......thus the hole was the prevailing reason for the coming Ice Age (so the experts said).

    So it follows the climate nutters only need to bring back hairspray and R-12.....problem solved, no more global warming. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The day Al Gore decided that the world was going to melt rather than freeze the collective Left and their pet scientists forgot all about the TERROR that up to then had been the Ozone Threat. It was like ideological . . . magic.

    I wonder if L.A. leftists understand that electric motors in electric cars are a major source of ozone - the major component of their smog. :icon_picknose:

    One day in the future children will be taught human’s once believed using under-arm deodorant was making a giant hole in the atmosphere which was going to lead to the trigging of an human extinction Ice Age. And children will do what the wise amongst us do now...laugh.

    After that lesson, the teachers will teach them that shortly thereafter humans begin to believe that eating hamburgers, sipping soda with straws, and driving children to Disney World was going to melt the planet and flood the earth by creating a human extinction event they called “Global Warming”.

    The children, now completely perplexed, will gasp “What?” The teacher will laughingly reply, “They were smoking a lot of good weed back then. They believed it expanded their minds, instead it shrank their brains.”

    Give it 25 yrs. it will be taught—if the human being regains it’s reason.

    Isn’t it ironic - ozone is a major greenhouse gas? :)

    I'd forgotten that before the fossil-fuel industry funding to try and confuse the public about climate change the chemical industry tried to use the same tactics to delay regulation of CFC's. In fact, Fred Singer was a big part of that.

    So the hack you are citing was trying to sell this book back in the 90's and everything you've linked to in mitosyfruads(lol) is dated and has been debunked:

    [​IMG]

    http://s3.amazonaws.com/arena-attachments/1681302/81135daed9eca91760ffd75a38f9a75f.pdf?1517451501

    https://scepticwatch.blogspot.com/2012/12/merchants-of-doubt-ozone-wars.html

    The link you provided is all wacko conspiracy nonsense from the 90's that has been laughed off and discredited long ago.

    The science of ozone depletion is well established and the planet coming together to fight it is inspirational.

    There is literally no ends you guys will not go to nor any source wacky enough that you will not throw it up on sites like this to try and forward the myth of industries that cause pollution and major environmental damage to us all are in fact not doing it and that pollution of the atmosphere is okay. Just like the tobacco industry before where much of this delaying and obfuscation tactic comes from.

    I understand you have no scientific background but do you even read your own sources?

    R22 Chlorofluoro Carbons replaced with Ecologically Safe R410A.. The stuff propels inhalers too.

    Thank Al Gore for eliminating the ozone hole

    China still uses R22 extensively even though they agreed to change
