Sounds like you were over-reacting. The only people I know of that
_might_ have said the above are anarchists.

Actually, the ozone holes are at both poles, and have been growing (at
least over the last 15 years that I have been keeping track of it).
Decreased ozone means increased skin cancers and may increase global
warming and decrease frozen land ice. Ice...you know, the stuff that's
_supposed_ to be at the North Pole _and_ South Pole? But evidently
isn't all the time?
