Climate change: Lesser of evils

I don't cover global warming much because, frankly, I get tired of the dogmatically opposite positions and the venomous rhetoric. But this item points up an important lesson: this business is complicated. Recent studies indicate some actions proposed to repair the Antarctic ozone "hole" would exacerbate global warming, and vice versa.
COMMENT: Memo to Al Gore: I respect your efforts, but put away the simplistic approach of blaming of everything (such as the Myanmar cyclone) on human-caused global warming and start educating people about how this is a very complex field and we have a lot of research to do in pursuit of a complete understanding.
