    Just to give you mass media BS lovers a heads up the ol planet Earth has its southern hemisphere moving into its summer season which as many of you may not know is also when the seasonal thinning of the southern poles ozone layer starts.
    Yea that's right. It turns out that the thing comes and goes with the seasons and the experts who monitor it know it. :rolleyes:


    So given that if any of you decide to do any follow up reading on this be sure to look closely at the time lines of the information and animations out there. Most will just show you the year to year status focusing primarily on November being that November is of course they month that the hole is largest, sort of like how January and February are also incidentally always the coldest months in the northern hemisphere, so given that have a look yourself courtesy of NASA.

    If you look at their animations look at the day to day one for the whole year of 2015 and you will see that the hole is gone for almost the entire year except for around November which just happens to be the only month used for the whole 1979 to present animations that you may see on the news. :mad:


    Also for those with doubts that have a whole lot of time and bandwidth to burn up here are the actual full year to year seasonal animations from 1979 - 2005 ish which if you look at any of the complete yearly cycle animations the hole for the most part disappears entirely every year during the southern hemisphere's fall, winter spring cycles. o_O

    So anyone else find this sort of suspicious that the ozone hole can completely fix itself in a few months time year in and year out almost like how the annual 'dangerously low' winter low temperatures can somehow mysteriously recover back to normal 'safe' summertime temps? [​IMG]

    Kind of odd that we have had 30+ years of regulations in place to protect the ozone layer yet going by your charts we have had an overall negative effect on things.

    So whats up with that? o_O

    A very little reading would show that the chemicals involved don't break down easily. They are still there.

    Ozone is always generated by the sun, it is the break down of ozone by CFCs that was the big deal.

    I have no issues with the chemistry behind how CFC and ozone react together.

    What I have a problem with is how this hole can completely recover and disappear every years for 8 - 10 months without showing any significant drop in the relative levels elsewhere in the planet.

    That's the part I don't get and am highly suspicious of. If it can appear in a short time and then fix itself and return to normal levels in less than two months every year to me that strongly suggests a naturally occurring cycle just as temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, wind, etc drops and peaks go with the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons when compared to the year round numerical average values we associate to be the normal baseline. :rolleyes:
