27 Jul 2012: Powerful Storms Linked to Depletion of Ozone Layer, Study Says A new study warns that a surge in powerful storms, perhaps linked to a warming climate, could be causing a depletion of the planet’s protective ozone layer . Writing in the journal Science , Harvard researchers Cooling a Warming Planet: A Global Air Conditioning Surge The U.S. has long used more energy for air conditioning than all other nations combined. But as demand grows in the world’s warming regions, Stan Cox writes, global energy consumption for AC is expected to continue to rise dramatically and could have a major impact on climate change. READ THE e360 REPORT explain that water vapor inserted into the normally dry stratosphere by strong thunderstorms is triggering chemical reactions with now-banned chlorofluorocarbons, CFCs, essentially creating ozone-destroying conditions identical to tho...
