Imagine a world where a 5-minute walk would give you a sunburn. Such a world could have happened if human-produced chlorofluorocarbons had never been regulated. Paul Newman discusses two model simulations: the expected future under the MP, and a future where ozone depletion substances weren’t regulated.
