A case in point he mentioned a few years ago when I was interviewing him for a book: the near-elimination of CFCs pursuant to the Montreal Protocol had a positive implication for climate, because CFCs--besides being ozone eaters--also are potent greenhouse gases. A similar case in point from today's news--the precipitous drop in U.S. large car sales.
