Ozone hole grows

The ozone hole above the Arctic is growing, thanks to this year´s heavy winter, a European Union press release states today.

If the Arctic stratosphere continues to cool, the hole will continue to grow, the scientists say.

It may sound like another piece of harmless EU-sponsored scaremongering. One thing is strange though: if temperatures are too low above the Arctic now, and this is a bad thing, then why is so much money being thrown at combatting global warming? Surely, if this new report is true, we should be gladly encouraging the spread of global warming?
