Can we scrub the atmosphere of CFC’s?

    No.  CFCs in the atmosphere are so dilute it would not be practical to try to scrub them after they are released.  However, we have technology to scrub them at the source (ie when used in manufacturing, etc).  Regulation has phased out the use of CFCs in aeresols and refrigerants, so the concentration is already decreasing (they are broken down by UV rays when they reach the stratosphere).
