But wasting money and other resources trying to control the earth's surface temperature is a massive exercise in futility, — and likely a dangerous one if we knew how to do it.

Take CO2 out of the political equation and I'm cool. We needlessly spend many billions of tax dollars on that stuff when it could be used for infrastructure repair and real environmental protection.

Is it just a coincidence then that the curb on CFC use and burning of fossil fules has seen the hole in the ozone layer, largely repaired?

So much so that you never hear it mentioned these days?
