My Adventures in the Ozone Layer

S. Fred Singer –
May 15, 1992

In an excerpt from Rational Readings on Environmental Concerns (edited by Heartland Institute Science Director Jay Lehr), S. Fred Singer recounts his experience witnessing certain ideas depart from scientific truth. In particular, Singer focuses on the over-hyped claims of ozone layer depletion, and the hyperactivity this has created within U.S. government agencies, most notably the State Department and EPA.
