But of course, it would be utterly arrogant to think our actions can cause damage to the environment.
1. 99.9% of all species ever to exist on this planet are extinct.

2. Those Ozone holes that you reference.. Don't get all emotional.

United Nations Meteorlogical.org

Arctic Ozone Values Similar to 1980's (Geneva, 24 April 2001 )
"Total ozone values measured by the WMO's Global Atmosphere Watch network of ground based stations and satellites were about five per cent less than the average pre-1980 levels which are used as a 'normal' un-depleted reference. These higher ozone values are attributed to natural variations. "

Again, 150 years of industrialization are not going to throw a planet of 4.2 billion years into a calamatous flux.. An entity that has existed 28,000,000 times as long as the first smokestack.

Could you provide us with a link for that? I've never seen pre-1980 levels being refered to as a normal un-depleted reference. Arctic ozone levels had been in decline since the early 60s before tough legislation put an end to CFC emissions. Ozone levels have since stopped falling but aren't yet recovering. In the late 90s, antarctic ozone levels have been more than 50% lower than at its peak in 1960. Seems a bit high for a natural variation.
