    Default Remember the hole in the ozone layer?

    The largest-ever Arctic ozone hole developed this spring. Now, scientists say it's closed.

    Thus, despite what you may be thinking, it's recovery most likely can't be tracked to the reduction in pollution due to the coronavirus pandemic.
    "COVID19 and the associated lockdowns probably had nothing to do with this," the group said on Twitter. "It's been driven by an unusually strong and long-lived polar vortex, and isn't related to air quality changes."

    Each and every scientist, in turn, has an agenda that is more than likely financially motivated.
    The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.

    Exactly. Global warming should see a dip, since satellite images clearly show clear skies instead of polluted skies and we definitely are burning way less fossil fuels these days.
    In a way, we saved ourselves!

    The New Ice Age ...I mean Global Warming ...I mean Climate Change ...

    I can't keep up, as they keep changing the boundaries and criteria to fit the realities that don't fit nicely in their agenda.
    The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching.

    Keeping tenure, and a healthy paycheque coming in one requires the ability to be flexible and willing to change your reality with the times and your patron in mind.
