Qing-Bin Lu's Opinions

Disagree
This finding, combined with laboratory measurements, provides strong evidence of the role of cosmic-ray driven reactions in causing the ozone hole and resolves the mystery why a large discrepancy between the sunlight-related photochemical model and the observed ozone depletion exists.

Mostly Disagree
This study did not aim to make precise calculations of global temperature change with a sophisticated climate model including multiple parameters and factors. But it does show that the warming effect of CO2 was not the main cause of these climate transitions and other non-CFC gases had most likely saturated and CFCs and HCFCs could account for global warming observed in the late 20th century. A long-term global cooling starting around 2002 is expected to continue for next five to seven decades.
