Focus on the ozone layer

This is MK 11 of this article.

The original version, along with all my own comments disappeared when I tried posting to Facebook.


I am only asking questions here and don’t really have the answers. Is the ozone layer really healing or is it not? Is there an illegal manufacture of fluorocarbons – or is there something else at play which is threatening our futures along with abrupt climate change?

Is the Ozone Layer Collapsing?

This is a conventional view of the hole in the ozone layer according to Wikipedia


Ozone depletion describes two related events observed since the late 1970s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth'satmosphere (the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions.[1] The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone hole. There are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion events in addition to these stratospheric events.


The main cause of ozone depletion and the ozone hole is manufactured chemicals, especially manufactured halocarbon refrigerantssolventspropellants and foam-blowing agents (chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), HCFCs, halons), referred to as ozone-depleting substances (ODS). These compounds are transported into the stratosphere by the winds after being emitted at the surface.[2] Once in the stratosphere, they release halogen atoms through photodissociation, which catalyze the breakdown of ozone (O3) into oxygen (O2).[3] Both types of ozone depletion were observed to increase as emissions of halocarbons increased.

Ozone depletion and the ozone hole have generated worldwide concern over increased cancer risks and other negative effects. The ozone layer prevents most harmful UVB wavelengths of ultraviolet light (UV light) from passing through the Earth's atmosphere. These wavelengths cause skin cancersunburn and cataracts, which were projected to increase dramatically as a result of thinning ozone, as well as harming plants and animals. These concerns led to the adoption of the Montreal Protocol in 1987, which bans the production of CFCs, halons and other ozone-depleting chemicals.

The ban came into effect in 1989. Ozone levels stabilized by the mid-1990s and began to recover in the 2000s. Recovery is projected to continue over the next century, and the ozone hole is expected to reach pre-1980 levels by around 2075.[4] The Montreal Protocol is considered the most successful international environmental agreement to date.


THE DATA


This investigation is inspired by the wonderful work that Margo of Margo’s Healing Corner is doing in looking at the data.

She has demonstrated that ozone levels are very low, not only in Antarctica, but also in the tropics (see below)

The conventional view being propagated in mass media is that the ozone hole is healing.

Ozone recovery shock: Nasa says hole in Ozone Layer should be 'half closed in 5 years'

THE INFAMOUS hole in the ozone layer discovered around 40 years ago is repairing and should have half closed within five years, Nasa has sensationally claimed.

However other sources (including the ultra-conservative BBC) is demostrating that this is not the case.


Hunt for source of illegal chlorofluorocarbons …

Scientists have detected a mysterious and “shocking” rise in the world’s atmospheric levels of CFCs, the gas banned since the 1980s because it attacks the Earth’s protective ozone layer.


Chlorofluorocarbons were used in making foams for furniture and buildings, in aerosols and as refrigerants. But they were banned after the discovery of the ozone hole over Antarctica. Experts at the NOAA science agency in the US say they have ruled out the expected leaks of CFC-11 from those historical sources, or other atmospheric factors, in trying to explain the sudden sharp increase. “You are left with, boy, it really looks like somebody is making it new,” said Stephen Montzka at the NOAA.

Since 2007, there has been essentially zero reported production of CFC-11. The source of the new emissions has been tracked to east Asia, but finding a more precise location requires further investigation. Failing to do so could set back the ozone layer’s recovery by 10 years or more, say experts. Hopefully, says Montzka, “somebody who was maybe doing it purposefully will realise – oh, someone is paying attention – and stop doing it”.

The reason being ponted to is the illegal manufacture of chlorofluorocarbons mostly, but not exclusively in China.

BANNED FLUOROCARBONS IN CHINA AND ITALY


Illegal production of CFC-11 in China has a climate impact equivalent to 16-20 coal power plants, the Environmental Investigation Agency estimates

Chinese factories are illegally producing chemicals that damage the ozone layer and the climate. 

That was revealed in a survey of manufacturers carried out by the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) and corroborated by the New York Times on Monday.

The EIA identified eight companies in four provinces that were using CFC-11 in the production of plastic foams, which are most commonly used for building insulation. It is one of a group of chemicals banned under the 1987 Montreal Protocol to protect the ozone layer.

These and other well placed sources in the Chinese chemical industry strongly suggest that this is a wider practice,” said the agency’s Avipsa Mahapatra.
The green watchdog estimates up to 70% of Chinese rigid foam production uses CFC-11, which has a global warming effect as well as depleting ozone. By the EIA’s calculation, this illegal activity has a climate impact equivalent to 16-20 coal power stations.

Its findings go a long way to explain mysteriously high levels of the pollutant detected by air monitors, in data published in Nature last month.

Potent, climate-warming gases are being emitted into the atmosphere but are not being recorded in official inventories, a BBC investigation has found.

Air monitors in Switzerland have detected large quantities of one gas coming from a location in Italy.

However, the Italian submission to the UN records just a tiny amount of the substance being emitted.

Levels of some emissions from India and China are so uncertain that experts say their records are plus or minus 100%.

These flaws posed a bigger threat to the Paris climate agreement than US President Donald Trump’s intention to withdraw, researchers told BBC Radio 4’s Counting Carbon programme.

This points to the problems posed by geoengineering


The evils of global warming and ozone depletion are competing problems, at least in Antarctica, the results of two new studies suggest.

Schemes to pump sulfur into the atmosphere to counteract global warming might help cool the Earth, but they could also cause problems at the poles, scientists warned today. Continuous injections could drastically deplete polar ozone, delaying the recovery of the current ozone hole over Antarctica by several decades.

And another study finds that if the southern ozone hole is patched, the heat would turn on in Antarctica.

Injecting sulfur into the atmosphere is one of the most talked about "geoengineering" schemes aimed at counteracting the warming caused by the carbon dioxide building up in Earth's atmosphere, largely due to industry and vehicles emissions.

Sulfur particles, along with some other aerosols, can have a cooling effect on Earth's surface because they scatter incoming sunlight back out to space. This effect can actually happen naturally when sulfur is spewed out in volcanic eruptions. After the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption, which injected millions of tons of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere, global temperatures dropped by about 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.5 degrees Celsius).

THE CONTRARIAN VIEW - GEOENGINEERING
Below is a video and an article from Dane Wigington and a source who claims to have worked as an engineer with NASA.

The talk here is of low-frequency UV-C radiation, which is used as a germocidal, and according to conventonal sources is absorbed in the upper atmosphere and does not make it to the surface. Consequently, it is not measured.


Wigington and his source claim to have used high quality equipment to measure this and have concluded that there are high levels of this form of radiation in the atmosphere with potentially-devasting effects on insect populations and on the ability to grow food.

Ozone Layer Collapse, A Former NASA Contract Engineer Warns Of Planetary Omnicide ( Dane Wigington)

 

We are told by “official” sources that the ozone layer is recovering, that we have nothing to worry about. This narrative is being pushed by power structure controlled agencies in order to pacify the public until the last possible moment. How close is that moment? If we remain on the current course, anthropogenic activities (with climate engineering at the top of the list) may completely destroy the ozone layer within the next decade or less.

Without the ozone layer, all terrestrial life on Earth (and most aquatic life) will perish. The “official” sources who tell us climate engineering isn’t happening, who tell us that we are only seeing "condensation trail" grid patterns in our skies, are the same agencies telling us the ozone layer is getting better. Yet, the increasing intensity of UV radiation can be felt on the skin, on surfaces, is scorching foliage and tree trunks, and is sunburning whales and fish. The increasingly intense UV radiation from the disintegrating ozone layer can and is being metered by experts in the field. In this video a former NASA contract engineer discusses the immense and immediate UV radiation dangers we face from the disintegrating ozone layer which he is personally metering with state of the art equipment supplied through GeoengineeringWatch.org

Though the official ozone layer “recovery” lie is still being propagated, some sources are acknowledging reality as the truth becomes ever more difficult to hide.

Global power structures are increasingly desperate to keep populations from panicking as the biosphere collapse accelerates. The recent “ozone layer is recovering” official agency false narrative is a blatant example of the Orwellian world we now find ourselves in. We must think for ourselves, we must do objective investigation, we must examine the frontline facts for ourselves, we must use all available verifiable data to form our conclusions.

Until recently official sources have pushed the patently false narrative that Earth's ozone layer was recovering, that blatant lie is now becoming impossible to maintain. Our planet's ozone layer is disintegrating, climate engineering is the single greatest causal factor (though no "official" source is yet willing to admit to the ongoing covert climate engineering atrocities). 
Ozone layer is NOT recovering over some of Earth's most highly populated areas putting billions at risk of exposure to cancer-causing UV rays… 
  • … scientists have now discovered ozone is failing to recover at lower latitudes 
  • It is likely not recovering at latitudes between 60°N and 60°S 
  • Researchers believe climate change is altering atmospheric circulation 
(The UK Daily Mail, 2/6/2018
Though some sources still claim there is limited ozone layer recovery over the polar regions, front line data from some of the same sources does not support such a conclusion. How many are even aware of the "Unprecedented Ozone Hole Over (the) Canadian Arctic" (that was first reported in 2011)? In regard to the UK Daily Mail statement that "Researchers believe climate change is altering atmospheric circulations", again, a lie. Geoengineering is the greatest single factor impacting atmospheric circulation patterns
Ozone Layer Not Recovering Over Populated Areas, Scientists Warn  
… the protective ozone is thinning at the lower latitudes, where the sunlight is stronger and billions of people live 
(The Guardian, 2/6/2018
Scientists Find That A Vital Part Of Earth’s Ozone Layer Is Not Healing As Expected
The rescue of the planet’s protective ozone layer has been hailed as one of the great success stories of modern environmental regulation — but on Monday, an international team of 22 scientists raised doubts about whether ozone is recovering as expected across much of the world. 
(The Washington Post, 2/6/2018
In May of 2014 GeoengineeringWatch.org reported on the record that geoengineering was destroying the ozone layer. Efforts to “debunk” our data based ozone layer collapse conclusions were again countered by Geoengineering Watch. During the last few years a number of attempts were made by mainstream sources to convince populations that the ozone layer was recovering, Geoengineering Watch again responded on the record that the “ozone recovery” narrative was (and is) completely false.  Mainstream and official sources have long since admitted that geoengineering programs "would" damage the ozone layer "if" geoengineering was deployed (though no official source will admit to the ongoing climate engineering reality). 

We are being lied to on every level, and to a degree that cannot be truly comprehended. The ozone layer is not recovering, it is collapsing. Though there are countless anthropogenic factors negatively impacting Earth’s vital ozone layer, climate engineering / geoengineeering / solar radiation management is by far the single greatest factor fueling ozone layer collapse. To be clear, if the ozone layer completely collapses, all terrestrial life and most aquatic life will perish. How close could such a state be if we remain on the current course? We are perilously close, perhaps only a few years. 

The “official denial” of climate engineering is also breaking down, the impacts of the ongoing geoengineering / solar radiation management assault are becoming all but impossible to hide in plain sight.  



The horrific environmental and climate decimation being created by climate engineering are far beyond catastrophic. Though there are countless forms of anthropogenic damage to the planet and the climate system, global geoengineering operations are mathematically the most destructive of all. If public apathy regarding the climate engineering assault remains, if academia continues to lie about the climate engineering reality, if climate engineering is allowed to continue, our days are numbered. Again, this is not speculation, theory, conjecture, or hypothesis, rather, it is a mathematical fact. Every single individual that is awake and aware is needed in the critical battle to sound the alarm. Sharing credible data from a credible source is most effective and efficient way to gain traction in this battle. 

Make your voice heard while it can still make a difference.

The following is a scientific paper which points in the same direction


Aims: The dangerous portion of ultraviolet radiation is widely believed to be completely absorbed by the atmosphere before reaching Earth’s surface. Our objective is to make multiple measurements at Earth’s surface of the solar irradiance spectrum in the range 200-400 nm. 

Methods: We made numerous measurements of the solar irradiance spectrum in the range 200-400 nm at an elevation of 56 m with International Light Technologies ILT950UV Spectral Radiometer mounted on a Meade LXD55 auto guider telescope tripod and mount assembly.

Results: Our multifold measurements of solar irradiance spectra demonstrate conclusively that all wavelengths in the spectral range 200-400 nm reach Earth’s surface, contrary to the widespread perception that all UV-C and the majority of UV-B never reach the surface. We confirm the surface UV-C measurements of D’Antoni et al. (2007) that were disputed, based on faulty computer model calculations of atmospheric ozone, and thereafter ignored by the geoscience community.

Conclusions: The veracity of our data and D’Antoni et al. (2007)’s data call into question the validity of atmospheric ozone models. Further, we call into question the simplistic supposition of the Montreal Protocol that chloro-fluoro-hydrocarbons are the primary cause of ozone depletion, and point to the very heavy burden of halogens introduced into the atmosphere by ongoing jet-sprayed coal-fly-ash geoengineering. We demonstrate that satellite-based LISIRD solar spectra irradiance at the top of the atmosphere is badly flawed with some regions of the spectrum being less intense than measured at Earth’s surface. That calls into question any calculations made utilizing LISIRD data. We provide introductory information on the devastating effects of UV-B and UV-C on humans, phytoplankton, coral, insects and plants. These will be discussed in greater detail in subsequent articles.

Lastly here is a surprising article from Thom Hartmann on the potential for geoengineering to destroy the ozone layer


1 July, 2012

Professor David Karoly, of the University of Melbourne’s School of Earth Sciences, says another ‘pie in the sky’ solution is to shoot sulfur particles in the atmosphere to shield the earth from the sun. He says that would destroy the ozone layer.

additional article about this

Has anybody stepped out into the sun lately? Others have affirmed what I have experienced: It's a lot easier to get a sunburn than it used to be. Has anybody else noticed?

They are illegally geoengineering the atmosphere of our planet, with a lot worse than sulfur particles. And now they want to do MORE: The need for geoengineering 

Do the lovely graphs convince you? There are lunatics calling themselves scientists, preparing the stage for disaster - in the name of "science". They will lead us to our deaths by trying to play God and manipulating systems that were not meant to be manipulated by man. There are Transhumanists (Google it) who believe that technology will surpass human being - we will be truly subsurvient to machine in all it's glory. These people are insane.

They have been chemtrailing the planet heavily for more than a decade now, not to mention the sacreligious cooking of the ionosphere (ie HAARP).

CNN: nothing
NPR: nothing
"progressive" talk radio: nothing
our so called political leaders: next to nothing
