Although this article may seem to be basic to many people that are knowledgeable about the topic, but there are still some that really don’t know the difference. Unfortunately, some of these people are even science teachers in grade school by remote schools worldwide.
What is Ozone Depletion?
Let’s start with what is ozone?
Ozone is actually oxygen. Although the common oxygen we breath are molecules of O2. This is two atoms of oxygen bonded together by a double covalent bond, where each bond can be expressed as an electron pair. Now Ozone is actually O3, where it’s molecules are each composed of 3 atoms of Oxygen. Although this may be unusual for oxygen since oxygen atoms could only take 2 covalent bonds, and the 3 oxygen atoms in ozone are arranged in a straight line, the middle oxygen is actually having a kind of shared bond on the other two oxygen atoms. (A similar behavior of this is commonly seen in a benzene ring.) Although this can be pictured in a different way depending on the model you use, since bonds can be expressed as fixed lines, but sometimes also as electron clouds. But for the purposes of discussion, here is how it goes. As I started thinking about it, I think if I discuss it further, this post will be too long. I will make another story dedicated to ozone alone. But what is important now is just to know that ozone is also oxygen but has 3 oxygen atoms (O3) while the oxygen we breath has 2 oxygen atoms (O2).

With my past two post comparing the contributions of CO2 and amount of sun activity measured by the amount of sunspots, where it is quite debatable what is influencing globalwarming has brought in more questions, and more answers as well. I was honestly quite surprised people were placing comments and digging the story. And an interesting comment on the dugg post by M0b1u5 was about the Kardashev scale. His comment was so different and had a link that seemed irrelevant I was not clicking on it as it looked liked spam. But after reading all other comments where many of them had some valid points, I decided to look at the Kardashev scale. As M0b1u5 mentioned in his comment:
Yeah, nothing like facts to really screw the pseudo-religion of GW. Err, Global Warming, not Dumbya.
Not worth spending a single cent to even try to prevent global warming.
Get used to it. Spend the money adapting to it – Because we are not yet a Type I Civilization!
Without any knowledge of what he was really talking about, I took a better look into it. The Kardashev Scale maybe quite mathematically hard to grasp for the non-mathematician.
Where K is a civilization’s Kardashev rating and W is its power output in watts. Note that Roman numerals must still be used for the integer part of a civilization’s rating, while the fractional part is written in decimal. And from here, all sorts of complicated exponential and logarithmic graphs can come out after doing from projects over time.

In my previous post yesterday, where I said the real cause of globalwarming is from natural occurrences from the sun where in when there are more sunspots, the global temperature is higher as I have also shown in the graph in my GlobalWarming Awareness2007 post here. And I have also shown you the effect of CO2 in the total effect of greenhouse gases is very minimal as I have shown in the pie chart in this post about the greenhouse effect and what it has to do with this GlobalWarming Awareness2007 movement. And thus concluding that the sun is the main cause of the globalwarming and not the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. Although a comment by David in my previous post mentions:
Why did you omit the last 30 years from your graph? Because the last 30 years completely destroy your claim. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Temp-sunspot-co2.svg
Pick your conclusions to support your data, not vice versa. Thatâ€™s the difference between science and propaganda.

As I have discussed in my previous introduction on what causes globalwarming in the previous post yesterday, as many people know it is Carbon Dioxide or Co2. And this is also what I have known since a grade school student where our teachers say Co2 from all these pollution sources destroy the atmosphere (obviously confusing it with CFCs that destroy the ozone layer which is totally a different story on this globalwarming awareness2007 issue.)
After some time you learn more, and I eventually became a chemist as my first profession. As many results in the past tht have been recorded, it has shown that there is not a direct relation between Co2 and global temperature as I have mentioned in my previous post. But based on other data, there seems to be something else responsible for the GlobalWarming.
In the article by Robert Britt on Space.com entitled: Sun’s Output Increasing in Possible Trend Fueling Global Warming has explained that the there seems to be a direct correlation between the sun’s activity and global temperature.

The GlobalWarming Awareness2007 I believe has been over sensationalizing this topic. Being a person who was interested in science, way back in the late 1980’s people were talking about the ozone layer depletion, which for the unfamiliar, it is nice to set clear early that the ozone layer depletion and global warming are two different things. And I guess the only thing that makes them similar in anyway is that the harm is coming from the sun. I will deal with ozone layer depletion later on and lets stick with what causes global warming.
The main cause of GlobalWarming is what is known as the Greenhouse Effect. In my attempt for the simplest way to explain it, it goes this way:

GlobalWarming Awareness2007 in simple layman’s terms
Basically GlobalWarming is the constant increase of global temperature worldwide. And when the global temperature increases, polar regions heat up causing more ice to melt making sea level increase. So what dangers do these cause?
The claimed potential dangers of GlobalWarming
Since the main danger of GlobalWarming is the melting of ice in the polar regions, the real claimed danger is not the increase in temperature to a point it’s to hot to live on earth, but the more potential threat of melting polar regions causing the two main problems:
