That's nearly 8 years old (1997) and doesn't cover any stats since the global reduction of CFC use. Is anything newer out there?

Exactly. We detected them when we launched the satalites to measure ozone, and then we discarded the data because we assumed it was faulty.
Only years later after the fact did they go back and confirm that the data confirmed seasonal thinning of polar Ozone. We have no idea, at present, what the cause may have been.
Also, since this debate was fashionable, we've discovered creatures that halogenate their own hydrocarbons--part of the weird metabolism of deep ocean volcanic creatures that live happily in "toxic sulpher fumes." Meaning it's no more possible to eliminate environmental CFCs than it is to eliminate environmental radiation.
DAGS on "Sustainabilty of Human Progress" for MANY pages of actual data and actual calculations. You need not agree with his conclusions, but you must understand his thought process.
We have temperature readings dating back to Galleleo. But for most of the Earth, no readings exist prior to WWII when the weather became important to some folks as a means to an end to prosecuting said WW.
The fact that some people "remember" cooler weather has nothing to do with whether the worldwide pattern of weather has in fact changed, and even less to do with what, if anything should be done in the event that it DOES prove to be a problem.
Environmentalism has in some quarters become a religion, with all that implies. It is the one heresy of which it remains fashionable to accuse another in Western liberal cultures.
But religions arguments do not make for good policy, regardless of whether your religion identifies a particular diety.

Unexpected results in one's data collection are correctly suspected of being faulty, until the results can be replicated.

False. The cause was anthropogenic CFCs.

False. It is possible to eliminate artificial CFCs. The debate (it's over, by the way) was not a "fashion." Researchers gathered data, and learned something new. The consequences were easy to predict. After a period of peer-review, the results and conclusions are accepted by everyone except loonies.

False.
The 016/018 delta ratio is a reliable indicator of global temperature. Ice cores provide the samples; the data go back thousands of years. The ice core samples can provide measurements of naturally-occuring chlorine compounds, too.

True, but irrelevant. Cooler or warmer weather has little or nothing to do with erosion of upper-atmosphere ozone.

False. Your second sentence makes no sense, either.

True, but irrelevant when the topic is reality.
P.S. I had a brain fart in an earlier post. I do know that 1 - 10 = -9, but my fingers apparently forgot.

Argument on anthropogenic origins of ozone depletion elided.
(I can't call it a debate because only one side (the fellow with a name, Charles) has provided any citations (a professor at stanford, iirc), while the anonymous poster (AS) just states "True", "False" as if one were to take his word for it).

Cite? What makes you (AS) more authoritative than Charles?

I see, change the terminology to fit. "Environmental CFCs becomes artificial CFCs".

Ah. Ad hominem attack.
Per Professor John McCarthy (whom few would genuinely consider looney):
"The theory that the ozone layer is being damaged by chlorofluorocarbons has widespread acceptance, but there are many scientifically respectable dissenters"
<http://www-formal.stanford.edu/jmc/progress/ozone.html

Cite Please? (on the reliability of O-16/o-18 delta ratios for historic global temperature (vice the local core area))

Sorry, but wrong. I can see the jump in spam even when my email is disguised ("remove something" type). The ISP from which I post filters most, not all. I also like my nick, because it is clever and humorous. Before you quibble with me about my choice of nicks, why don't you go beat up on Keith? Hmm?
If I say, "There was a full Moon last night," it doesn't matter what my nick is, or if I even say it. The Moon was full last night. No amount of quibbling changes the fact. So, don't look at my finger. Look where I'm pointing.

Nope, didn't get to the rummage sale. I assume that was the one on highway 100? Both events that I've known about so far (other than the one that Paul and I went to at the wrong Balestrari's) have been on bad days.

It does not affect the synthesis of ozone. It affects the rate of breakdown of ozone. Comprende?
1 goes in, 1 goes out, net change 0. 1 goes in, 10 go out, net change -10.
Minus ten is less than zero.

No affect on the mechanism or the rate of synthesis, obviously. But since it increases the rate of breakdown, it clearly produces a net loss of ozone.

I can see it coming in 20 or 50 years. Some volcanic eruption or excessive cow farts will injure the atmosphere and scientists will be releasing CFCs to make more oxygen from the ozone layer.

CFCs participate in a catalytic cycle which breaks down ozone. The catalytic aspect is why it is so important to stop putting CFCs into the atmosphere. Remember, CFCs are wholly artificial. Natural processes, vulcanism, for example, can contribute chlorine compounds to the atmosphere. The naturally occurring chlorinated molecules have a much smaller effect on upper-atmosphere ozone levels than do the artificial CFCs.

I expect you to use nothing but waterborne finishes, cook nothing on the BBQ, use electric home heat, and drive an electric car so you don't pollute the air, Scoby baby.
(Oops, electricity is coal-powered so the damage is sone anyway. No heat for you. BTW, is your shop totally Neander-based yet?)

So much for the ad hominem.
Why is it that my reporting of scientifically peer-reviewed public knowledge causes you so much fear? What are you afraid of? Yes, your world view might have to change to fit reality, and that may frighten and confuse you. However, many other people have mastered that challenge, and have come through as better people. <really funny, but ad hominem, punch line redacted.>
I am sorry Mr. Jacques. I had previously scored your posts high, because of the quality of woodworking advice you presented here. I'm sorry to have to rescore your posts. Your postings on this topic have revealed an inability to perform critical thought and sound reasoning. I cannot expect that your woodworking advice is any more sound. Because it is possible that you do indeed have some small ability with wood, or are able to repeat sound advice presented to you by your betters, your ww posts may contain a nugget of value here and there. Thus, no "plonk." Regretably, I suspect that your vitriolic response will be to kill the messenger. Do try to rise above that base emotion, you'll be a better, more mature person for it.

Heh, it's winter. Put your thick skin back on. That was humor, not an attack. Man, lighten UP. Eez joke, mon.

I used to be somewhat of an environmentalist but I read too much research for that. Liberal scientists tend to insert more fear than reality or science. Please note, that's not my fear.

Hey, that's "Jaques". My other nickname is "C-less". My other brother Jacques Cousteau has a "c" in his first name. (Should I overreact to an ad hominy attack here? I'm cornfused.)

Are you done yet? Good. Now smile. It was the original intention of my post. What the heck got you so worked up, anyway?
Namaste.

I respect the environment.. I recycle.. I try to be responsible and caring about waste and air quality..
BUT, if my ass (and my tools) is about to burn up, I'd put the fire out with baby seals and unburned hydrocarbons if it worked fast..

calmly ranted:

Check the stats again. It is THEORIZED but has never proven that the released chlorine destroys the ozone layer.

Yes, and recycle stuff, buy bulk when possible, etc.

Ayup. Whatever it takes.

Sigh. In science, a "theory" is a hypothesis which, while still subject to disproof, has so far passed all experimental tests. "Theory" is as good as it gets. Gravitation is a "theory." Golly, look, you just started to drift off the floor! After all, it's only a "theory." Cheez.
C'mon people, this is Jr. High level stuff; ya know, the "Scientific Method," and all that. It's not just Mr. Blathermeister droning on about forces and atoms. It's reality. Get a grip on it.
You trolls should be ashamed of yourselves. Go read a damn book and stop cluttering the bandwidth with your asinine, willfully ignorant drivel.
