Spunds like you have a real bee in your bonnet!!

There's a very interesting article in the most recent Scientific
American about asbestos BTW and all the many things it was used for.

Don't you really believe that flakes of asbestos cause cancer? I
thought that was a fairly unconrtoversial conclusion.

As for the Challenger, blaming it's destruction on the decision to
remove asbestos from school buildings is quite a stretch!

Aside from that, asbestos is not banned, it could have been used in
the shuttle.

OK, whatever, but what does that have to do with global warming?
