Montreal Protocol causes Global Warming

Recommended Posts

This is what happens when you mess with things you don't understand.

quote:

... they had little idea that using other gases that contain chlorine or fluorine instead also would contribute greatly to global warming...

Because they raised the alarms and didn't REALLY know what they were doing, or even if they were right, what the correct fix was.

quote:

In theory, the ban should have helped both problems.

And this is the primary problem, is that it's ALL theories, very unproven theories.

quote:

This unintended consequence now haunts the nations that signed both U.N. treaties.

quote:

Switzerland first tried in 1990 to sound an alarm that the solution for plugging the ozone hole might contribute to another environmental problem. The reaction?

"Nothing, or almost," said Blaise Horisberger, the Swiss representative to U.N.-backed Montreal treaty. "We have been permanently raising this issue. It has been really difficult."

Poor Switzerland, don't they understand, this isn't Science, it's politics.

quote:

Some of the replacement chemicals whose use has grown because of the Montreal treaty ÔÇö hydrochloroflourocarbons, or HCFCs, and their byproducts, hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs ÔÇö decompose faster than CFCs because they contain hydrogen.

But, like CFCs, they are considered potent greenhouse gases that harm the climate ÔÇö up to 10,000 times worse than carbon dioxide emissions.

So in other words they've made things worse, up to 10,000 Times worse than the Evil Carbon Dioxide emissions that Al Gore and his book is going NUTS over.

But of course, even with all of this, what do the enviro-wacko's think of all this?

quote:

The Montreal Protocol, which now has 189 member nations, is considered one of the most effective environmental treaties. Almost $2.1 billion has been spent through an affiliated fund to prod countries to stop making and using CFCs and other ozone-damaging chemicals in refrigerators, air conditioners, foams and other products.

Let me repeat one part, just in case you guys didn't get this....

quote:

.... is considered one of the most effective environmental treaties....

It's a MASSIVE Failure, but they think it's the most effective environmental treaties!!!!

Typical liberalism, doesn't matter if it works or not, it made them feel good, therefore it was effective.

I'm sure this story about Global Warming, would have Gotten MUCH more traction if Ernesto turned out to be a REAL threat. But of course with Ernesto and most of the season being a DUD, they're keeping quiet for now, waiting for conditions to be favorable for them again, so they can complain loudly.

One of their theories, is that since we're warming the planet, we can expect to see more and more powerfull hurricanes as time goes on. The weather service was "Baffled" as to why the hurricane didn't strenthen. Again, it's something they don't fully understand.
