Now that's ironic... Even the link between smoking and cancer is somehow being questioned :-)

But Kenneth is correct, the link between human activity and the ozone hole as well as human activity and global emissions (and warming) are quite strong hypotheses.

Why do some reject science so easily?

 Friends: I have been lurking on this discussion, but can not resist some comment. Today's Washington Post http://letters.washingtonpost.com/W1RT0311537A988B9E97F32F4073E0 has a story about much faster-than-expected meltback of the Greenland icecap and mountain glaciers around the world. It seems to me that the evidence in support of the hypothesis that global warming is largely caused by excessive human use of fossil fuels is about as strong as (or stronger than) the 1960's evidence in support of the hypothesis that smoking is significantly responsible for lung cancer, even though at that time there were many who denied that hypothesis too. ..."
