The June 14, 2017 London, England Grenfell Tower Fire with up to 70 dead when the final count is known, may well be the greatest disaster resulting from the false science of the “Ozone Shield” myth that blamed Freon™ gas for destroying said mythical shield with a chemical reaction never observed in nature or in a laboratory. Nonetheless, it earned a Nobel Prize and created a new level of corruption in academia the child of which is “global warming” or “climate change” in the elected ruling class determination to corrupt everything for power and profit.

University of Irvine, California chemists Mario Molina and Sherman Rowland hatched the “Ozone Hole” hypothesis in 1974 in search of a grant there claiming Freon(tm), the finest industrial chemical ever made, was gobbling up the ozone topping the troposphere to block hard ultraviolet light from sunlight and should be banned. The DC elected ruling class saw a power opportunity, more taxes and a bigger EPA bureau so they gave Molina and Rowland in a “seed money” grant of $60,000 to advance the case.

They produced a paper with hypothetical equations thermodynamically dubious, but no one objected and got a Nobel Prize! One million Dollars for a phony fable! The general public does not realize much of science is taught with myths that are not fact because the facts are too complex to teach for most who get chalk on their jackets every day. Nonetheless, this opened the eyes of every US college Physical Science Chairman and nothing has been the same since.

Dupont did not defend Freon™ because the patent had expired and they saw an opportunity for making new, inferior formulations and regain control of the refrigerant market by claiming they would not destroy the “ozone shield” which was easy as nothing could where it does not exist. Anyone with a smattering of intelligence and one course on the atmosphere would know there is very little of anything at the top of the troposphere. Certainly not enough to form a “shield.” Every PhD doing a talk at a garden club only had to put a Calculus expression on the chalkboard, mumble some gibberish and all would think him “a real smart feller” as he tap-danced through the newest myth for money.

The upper atmosphere appearance of “ozone,” which is actually atomic oxygen [O] with a life of about 1/5,000,000th second, comes and goes with the Antarctic sun. All they had to do was be in the right place at the right time, aim a Dobson scope at the zenith, see nothing and claim success! “Free oxygen atoms, aka “ozone,” usually oxides of nitrogen as 78% of the atmosphere is nitrogen.” A free atom of a normally two-atom, “diatomic” molecule cannot ignore such a dance partner. Romance is quick in the dimension of the very, very small.

The “new” chemicals Dupont patented were the same or chemically very similar to those that killed 492 people in the 1940 Coconut Grove dance hall fire from leaky air conditioning equipment using early flammable refrigerants. Ironically, it was this catastrophe forced the development of Freon™ with no flammable hydrogen! All the new replacements do have hydrogen that can peel off with heat to become atomic hydrogen, [H] which just about the nastiest stuff known. A directed beam of it cuts through a diamond like butter.

Molina and Roland postulated a mythical “Ozone Shield,” which is a patent lie as gasses cannot form surfaces, and every physical scientist knows it. Ozone is made throughout the atmosphere when hard UV hits O2 and makes temporary oxygen atoms or “ozone.” It happens all the way down to 5,000 feet and it becomes the brown layer Los Angeles people call “smog.”

One press report we have not been able to confirm says the Grenfell Tower fire began in a second floor refrigeration unit which is consistent with a fear we have expressed for 30 years. Thanks to Molina and Rowland, Federal grants, and panic pushing science, every refrigerator in America is now a time bomb waiting for seals to fail so it can leak combustible gas into the air. Where many refrigerators are programmed for de-icing at night they are more likely to burst seals then, fill your kitchen with flammable gases and go “ka-boom!”

Gas explosions are the most destructive kind and known in weapons technology as “Poor man’s atomic bombs,” because the flame front accelerates unrestrictedly to form a lethal shock wave exceeded only by nuclear weapons. In this case there apparently was no explosion but an intense fire; one sufficiently hot enough to ignite the aluminum siding forced on the building by environmentalists to save heat thereby reducing mythical “greenhouse gases.”

While it takes a very hot flame to ignite aluminum, once under way it is very difficult to stop as it puts out so much heat it becomes its’ own oxidizer. Small amounts of water feed it dissociate unless the amount is enormous, and that never comes from ordinary fire fighting equipment. CO2 blankets work, but again, that takes huge amounts of CO2 and they are dangerous to personnel.

The question now is, “Will our government tell us the truth?” Will they give us enough information to come to the realization we were lied to for money and power or will they smooth it over with a cover story ignoring your kitchen time bomb with more science-sounding gibberish? They will never bring back Freon™ which is the solution. That would diminish their power.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology. During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean's office. "You don't like the way we do things here?" was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion. After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover's books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962. While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series. For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800. Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson's PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70's. His "Timing Waves to Enter The Sea" article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual. "UFO's, The Eye and the Camera" documents his "Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed." It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically. Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook's secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of "The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method. On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD. When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90's to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work. The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the "II" machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the "star" economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves. Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, "The Stock Surfer" was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria.
