ABSTRACT
Examines the debate concerning the threat of ozone depletion. Arguments regarding whether or not the ozone hole existed before chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs); Ability of CFCs to migrate into the stratosphere; Overstating the effect of natural sources of chlorine; Absence of evidence on health hazards of ozone depletion in the northern latitude; Increase in ultra-violet B penetration.
