‘Alarmists’ saved the world

Letter to Editor by Kevin Culhane, June 20th 2017

In to respond to Mr. Dusenberry’s letter stating that people concerned about climate change are “alarmists”: Atmospheric scientists discovered in 1973 that releasing CFCs from aerosol cans and refrigerants was thinning the ozone layer, the gas that screens out deadly UV radiation, and convinced leaders of nations and CEOs that we needed to curb the use of CFCs. By 1987 the Montreal Protocol went into effect and humanity was saved by the “alarmists.”
