It's nice to see sane stuff I disagree with, instead of lunatics in
denial. It's safe to assume there are lots of people out there talking
about balance, trade-offs, & reasonable concerns. You've assembled a
nice list (which I snipped for obvious reasons).

Now, a couple questions:
You brought up the China/Third World CFC question. What gives with the
current situation, when the national media, at least, is saying that
ozone depletion is running "significantly higher than expected"?

Second, what's your take on biodiversity & this great extinction? I know
humans have been killing creatures off since (possibly) the wooly
mamoth. How does concern with biodiversity (a VERY long-term item) fit
in with the concerns of a market-centered world?

I'm a librarian, not an envorionmental scientist, so these are layman's
