None of this shit can be proven and to equate it to “science” is an insult to true science.

I hate crap like this that is pawned off as “settled science.”

A worldwide ban on ozone-depleting chemicals in 1987 has averted a climate catastrophe today, scientists say.

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, banning chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons, has now simulated our “world avoided”.

Without the treaty, Earth and its flora would have been exposed to far more of the Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has called it “perhaps the single most successful international agreement”.

Continued and increased use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) would have contributed to global air temperatures rising by an additional 2.5°C by the end of this century, the international team of scientists found.

Part of that would have been caused directly by CFCs, which are also potent greenhouse gases.

But the damage they cause the ozone layer would also have released additional planet-heating carbon dioxide – currently locked up in vegetation – into the atmosphere.

“In past experiments, people have exposed plants – basically tortured plants – with high levels of UV,” lead researcher Dr Paul Young, of the Lancaster Environment Centre, said.

“They get very stunted – so they don’t grow as much and can’t absorb as much carbon.”

“What we see in our ‘world-avoided experiment’ is an additional 2.5C warming above any warming that we would get from greenhouse-gas increases,” Dr Young said.

But similar collective action to limit greenhouse-gas emissions was likely to be much more challenging.

“The science was listened to and acted upon – we have not seen that to the same degree with climate change,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science programme.

The experiment could appear to suggest hope for an “alternative future” that had avoided the worst consequences of climate change.

“But I would be cautious of using it as a positive example for the climate negotiations,” Dr Young said.

“It’s not [directly] comparable – but it’s nice to have something positive to hold on to and to see that the world can come together.”

    Just more fodder for the emotional reacting, save the planet assholes to panic over.

    Just another moment where they can pat themselves on the back and tell the world how great they are by spouting off about something that nobody can prove them wrong because you can’t prove a negative.

    It’s like me telling the world I save everyone’s life by eating less beans and using the fact that everyone is still alive today as proof. It’s all BS. I though according to algore the north and south poles were supposed to be underwater by now, but no one brings up the fact that this asshole was wrong. And in 8 years, are we going to tell AOC she is an idiot and WRONG WRONG WRONG, about her moronic prediction that the world was going to be destroyed in 12 years.

    Nope. The left moves on and congratulate themselves for their bullshit when the fact is most of us are surprised as hell that they have killed us all by now with their leftist crap.
