CFC Ban May Not Have Been So Successful After All

People who advocate government action against global warming frequently cite the supposed success of the CFC ban in stopping ozone depletion. Well, it turns out it may not have been so successful after all. The CFC ban may not have killed as many people as the DDT banFDA ban on advertising aspirin's usefulness in reducing the risk of heart attack, but if this pans out it may be just one more misguided, extremely expensive attempt by government to change the natural course of things. Not really much different than throwing virgins into volcanos, except that virgins are much, much cheaper.
