The gas crunch of the 70s turned out to be a bust. But the hole in the
ozone layer was real according to scientists and they banned certain
aerosols to preserve it.

The CFC free chemicals now used in aerosols and refrigeration solved the ozone problem. Fortunately the new safer CFC free stuff doesn't deplete the ozone layer. Unfortunately it is a significant greenhouse gas thousands of times more likely to cause global warming than R-12 and other CFC. Fix one problem and create another.

Ultimately most crisis situations can probably be traced back to someone attempting to make lots of money.
