I received the following note:
Tonight the ABC news reported on the large ozone hole over the Antarctic.
On the news, first it was claimed that the large hole was responsible for the record cold weather there. Then that the cold weather was destroying the ozone and causing the hole.
Can you have it both ways?

According to ABC New Online:
“Dr Paul Fraser from the CSIRO says the lowest temperatures ever recorded in Antarctica’s upper stratosphere this winter – minus 85 degrees – are the cause.
“It’s certainly the coldest we have ever seen and it requires very cold temperatures to get very significant ozone depletion,” Dr Fraser said.”
And how does this fit with the IPCC global warming projections?
