Exclamation Chlorofluorocarbons

My dad works with Air-Conditioning, and uses a bunch of freon. Did you know that if you release (CFC'S) into the air it's a 1,000$ fine. CFC'S sre the reason why global warming will come. You see CFC'S deplete the ozone layer, which protects us from most of the heat. If we deplete to much, use to much Chlorofluorocarbons than we could die. The sun would melt all the ice in the ocean, causing it to rise and to flood the world. Crops would die. If they dont die from water drowing the sun is to intense for them to live. So please if your working with and type of Chlorofluorocarbons(cfc) please be careful. Any thing else that anyone wants to add just post a comment.

I don't think CFCs are the ones that cause global warming. They deplete the ozone layer, but recently, the ozone's been healing. Global warming is a bigger issue though...b/c it's hard to find a replacement for fossil fuels that release carbon dioxide. Also, it's very hard to reverse this. The temperature has risen some four degrees.

Anyways, CFCs aren't only in ACs. They're also in refrigerators. It's good CFC isn't used anymore...

Exclamation Well

I know for a fact that it is in affect fro the United States of America but i have no clue about Canada. Im using my telepathic senses to see that where you live. Am i right? People still use CFC'S always, but think the alternative is hfc's>?>?>? I got some good info from TheOzoneHole.com Its a good website. If you need to know anything about CFC'S just go there. CFC'S are made up of 3 different types of elements. 1 Carbon, 3 Chlorines, 1 fluorine. I wouldve put it in scientfic form but i cant because its on comp. On that site it says that the CFC'S can be benifitial to the ozone because the atmosphere doesnt have many fluorine molecules. If we dont stop and let the ozone heal then the cancer rate would increase. Millions upon millions would die from being drowned when it floods. Crop would burn. It would be horrible hard to live. You cant find much iinfo about the fine but my dad is in th A/C buisness and his friend got a fine for it. The government might have to stop the cfc use all together because many people have died breaking into A/C pipes and sucking on the freon. They get "high" from this. I hoped my info will help all who want to read about it. GOOD LUCK. Semper fi
