Maybe you won’t die?
I don’t know how many of you that remembers the Ozone thingy in the 80’s. It was its times “Environmental disaster!” Apparently refrigerators, hairspray and greenhouse gases nibbled away at the ozone layer creating a hole that became bigger for each day you picked up the newspaper. Doomsday analysts like scientists, biologists and politicians spoke of “a new ice age” (or much hotter climate, depending on the day) and Cancer was going to be the biggest plague mankind had ever seen. Predictions about the future of humans and the cancer that were going to hit us all were gloomy at best. If those predictions had been right there would have been piles of people everywhere dead or dying from cancer. Suddenly I read in today’s paper that the ozone layer is getting thicker… what..? No death and Cancer epidemics? How come? Did the scientists, biologist’s politicians and Armageddon spokespersons get it wrong? That has never happen before…
