That hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica is back -- and bigger than ever, scientists said Wednesday.
Not to worry.
The environmental nightmare of the '80s, which once seemed intent on killing every living thing on the planet, has become a toothless blowhard these days...
I'm a fancier of persiflage, but here it seems out of place. I mean, the writer seems positively miffed that the ozone hole is not going to contribute to the general mayhem coming soon to a global climate near you. Why do I say this? Because of the way he ends the article:
Scientists said they expect the ozone layer will have fully recovered sometime around 2065-2075 -- just in time for global warming to have a shot at destroying all life on Earth.
See what I mean? I'm supposed to take this guy seriously?
