[hackerspaces] Radical Solution To Save The Ozone Layer

Nice link ! Thanks a lot.


So EPA says that : "The other difficulty with simply manufacturing ozone is that the sun provides huge amounts of energy for the ozone production process. In fact, to produce the amount of ozone normally in the ozone layer, you'd have to use about double the total annual U.S. electricity production. There's simply no way we could create ozone fast enough, in large enough quantities, to replace the natural ozone production process."

"Since we can't make more ozone, the solution is to reduce the hole in the bucket back to its natural size. The only way to do that is to remove the excess chlorine and bromine from the stratosphere."

Is there enough O2 at the altitude to produce ozone?

I read it's produced by ultraviolet light. Maybe a bright light uses less
power than an electrical arc?


Suggests not enough power available, certainly not floating kind.
