(The New York Times)   Storms create lightning, which is bad. Lightning creates ozone, which is good. Updrafts drive moisture to high altitude and re-combine with CFC remnants, which is bad. But rain is good. Unless it washes SO4out as acid rain, which is bad   (nytimes.com ) divider line

Poor bastard.

Gonna mix at high altitudes and give us what we call snow. Did you want to talk about the weather or were you just making chit-chat?

The ozone created by thunderstorms never make it to the ozone layer anyway, and is therefore not of any use. What lightning DOES do of use is zap the nitrogen in the air into nitrates that rains down on the ground and fertilizes it.

Storms make the lightning.

Lightning makes the ozone.

Ozone makes the rain.

Rain makes the corn.

Corn makes the whiskey.

Whiskey makes my baby feel a little frisky.

//rain is a good thang

Yes. And in the Carboniferous period, the atmosphere was between 30 and 35 percent oxygen, sted of 21 percent like it is today.

Massive forest fires were the norm. Bacteria and fungi had not yet evolved, so things didn't rot.
Trilobites running around waving their arms screaming, "We're all gonna die, we're all gonna die!"

I'll sum it up for you in one sentence:

Some guy from Harvard wants a government grant to study man-made global warming, which has been proven to be fake.

Using severe weather as a link between climate change and ozone loss seems tenuous at best. I was glad to see Kerry Emanuel point it out. I'm sure the results of the severe weather / ozone connection are interesting, but we can't even reasonably predict severe storms in real time, much less tie them back to climate change.

Sitting in Laredo, TX, truck broke down. 10 inches of rain in 2 hours Friday morning. Run-off was about 2' high in the parking lot before draining away.

Well done, headline writer.

CFCs at high altitude. Those CFCs are well-noted for their lightness. Just drift right up the from ground source, to find themselves floating around at high altitude with other similarly light things, like bricks and cinder blocks.
