  1. In the 80s, when i was a kid, the scientists said “there’s a hole in the ozone layer and it’s being caused by CFC’s”. They explained how important the ozone layer is to life on Earth.
    So the world got together and we stopped using CFC’s. The hole stopped getting bigger. Now it’s shrinking apparently.

    Now imagine the same scenario happening today, in the internet age.

    The President and 50% of the people would claim it’s a hoax. 25% would try prayer. 15% wouldn’t care or even know about it cos it’s not on Snapchat. 5% would try shooting at the sky with a gun. The remaining 5% would actually try to fix the problem but wouldn’t get the funding or support they need. We’d all die.

  2. is there a single scientist who is ready to switch off his air conditioner,not going to use his 0 to 60 in 10 Secs monster,not going to use plastics???? then he could tell how to stop thining of Ozone layer!!!!

  3. Pollution is tagged as the culprit destroying the ozone yet no mention of the nuclear atmospheric testing last century. Explosions so energetic they created a temporary radiation belt and knocked out low orbit satellites. But didn’t effect the ozone layer🤐

  4. Bs the hole thing. First it was a hole in the ozone ,then it was global warming, now it’s climate change, all because of us . What else are we going to be blamed for?? What next😡.

  5. I always said that the depleted ozone layer was in fact not only a human caused event.and is natural phenomenon. I realized this when the earth repaired the holes on the poles back in 94
