ecmoRandomNumbers: I believe it. I was in SOUTH southern chile in the mid-90s. Some sheepherders were complaining that half their flock were blind. The rays would come through the ozone hole, hit the Antarctic ice sheets, the reflect off the clouds, I guess.I have dark brown hair. I two months of summer in Coyhaique, Chile, I had blonde eyebrows and it looked like I'd had my hair did. It was very good for my hair, but I'm freckled, so it just turned me red as hell. The summer sun was HARSH if your lived in Australia, South Africa, or South America in the 90s. We also weren't allowed to wear sunglasses back then because people thought we were American CIA. Weird.
recoil47: The most interesting part of that article, is that the hole looks kinda big in 2001, and in 2003, but appears almost closed in 2002. Then it goes on as normal for the most part until looking better again in 2012. In fact, 2002 and 2012 look very similar. Makes one think there is a lot more behind the ozone layer than just CFCs and human intervention.
