Hmm... this has the makings of a Dr. Seuss poem.

ive always wondered... ozone is not some magical thing, its just a gas.. why not just make more of it? have some bigass plant produce ozone and all the other plants on the planet that destroy the ozone pay for it.

Ozone is toxic and is actually a component of smog. You wouldn't want anybody living near that plant.

hoping global ozone depletion doesn't occur in our lifetime -_-

I've wondered this too...though it would take massive amounts of it. So it isn't like we could take a high altitude/low orbit plane up with gas tanks to release. Maybe a few low orbit space stations with the equipment making Ozone 24 hours a day. It is rather piosonous...so you couldn't safely release it from the ground. Plus it is kind of heavy...three oxygen atoms. It wouldn't want to float up easily.

LOL...holes in the Ozone layer and global warming are not releated. Not directly anyway. The Ozone layer stops the bad radiation from the sun so we don't all get skin cancer. So give up the anti-Gore speaches already.

There is far less wrong with scientific consensus than there is with how completely wrong most layman interpretations of it are.

This is a perfect example.

Localized cooling of the stratosphere most certainly does not imply global cooling.

Ozone in the lower atmosphere is pollution itself. It's poisonous.

No realistic way to place it where it needs to be artificially.

You do realize there are very little ozone depleting chemicals released by your car (assuming you aren't driving a diesel and have a working catalytic converter), right?

Reactions that that place in polar stratospheric clouds enhance the effect of ozone depleting chemicals, and these clouds form more readily when the stratosphere is cold, and many of the same causes of global warming can actually result in a cooler stratosphere.

Rain has nothing to do with stratospheric ozone. Indeed, rain doesn't exist at these altitudes.

UV light turns O2 into ozone, but not very quickly.

Not a big deal, we have scientists and engineers working on a process to help rebuild and have the ability to replace our ozone layer.
