Does climate change affect the ozone layer and cause more skin cancer to occur around the globe?
Why is skin cancer more profound in numbers and what does climate change have to do with this problem?
The ozone layers main function is to keep ultraviolet rays at a minimal. The depletion of it means of course more of the rays are being let through. Therefore causing human beings more problems. Such as skin cancer.
From the amount of news that we are reading everyday about climatic change, there are reasons to believe that it does, but this is just another reason that we have to be concerned about. The question here also is, when will the heads of government get really serious and make their first priority to do something about climate change?
It appears the answer is Yes:
The same CO2 radiative forcing that produces global warming is expected to cool the stratosphere. This cooling, in turn, is expected to produce a relative increase in ozone (O3) depletion in polar area and the frequency of ozone holes.

This is the thing people forget when considering climate change. We can all go from A to B: rising temperatures is going to melt ice and make the ocean level rise. That by itself is a crisis of epic proportions, but we forget (or aren't even told) about the multitude of chain reactions this will set off and cause problems (some of them, like reduced ozone, serious) and there are probably other side effects that we just don't know enough to identify before they happen.
But hey... there's still oil and coal in the ground, so why not keep using it?

Why isn't finding the cure for CANCER more important for the world than Climate Change?If the whole world agreed on finding a cure for Cancer, would that be a better avenue for the world to take than what they have now on Climate Control? Just a thought.

You can't make this stuff up. If the heat is causing people to kill in Chicago then it should be really dangerous in Phoenix. http://www.isthatbaloney.com/former-pla … nge-video/

It also banned the phrase "emissions reduction".I'm hopeful that the Trump administration will soon ban other stupid phrases, such as "freedom of expression".http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/e … ned-236655

I'm confused. I've read and heard arguments that global warming is really just part of a natural temperature change process for the earth. I've also read that it's completely man-made? Is it one or both of these? Please explain.

Global Warming is not man-made. http://www.dailyexpress.co.uk/posts/view/146138
