On June 28, 1974, Sherry Rowland and Mario Molina, chemists at the University of California, Irvine, published the first scientific paper warning that human-generated chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) could cause serious harm to Earth's protective ozone layer (Molina and Rowland, 1974)...
They warned that the loss of ozone would significantly increase the amount of skin-damaging ultraviolet UV-B light reaching the surface, greatly increasing skin cancer and cataracts. The loss of stratospheric ozone could also significantly cool the stratosphere, potentially causing destructive climate change. Although no stratospheric ozone loss had been observed yet..., CFCs should be banned, they said. At the time, the CFC industry was worth about $8 billion in the U.S., employed over 600,000 people directly, and 1.4 million people indirectly (Roan, 1989).
Critics and skeptics--primarily industry spokespeople and scientists from conservative think tanks--immediately attacked the theory. Despite the fact that Molina and Rowland's theory had wide support in the scientific community...
"...Molina and Rowland's theory had wide support in the scientific community... "

More evidence that scientific consensus is not scientific.

The Vice President invokes a distortion of science with pseudo-studies then asserts that such should not be tolerated.
The irony is inescapable.
Fat Al's 24 hour climate evangelist hayride on September 14 should be fun, I wonder how many conversions he'll make on that day.
There'll be plenty of fire and brimstone flying around, that's for sure.
If Al manages to convert the world, bringing everyone together in peace and harmony to fight one cause that doesn't involve killing people, he'll have my vote too, but not my money.
