Naw the CFC thing was real

There were no patents on CFC's, everyone just agreed to stop using them. There were plenty of good alternatives for cleaning metals and refrigerants anyway, so it made sense.

There is still an Ozone hole, too, it just isn't growing in the same way, so it isn't considered a problem anymore.

Last, the issue of the Ozone hole is completely different than global warming. They actually could measure directly the impact of CFCs and the models were much simpler, without many assumptions. They could also do tests in the lab to verify their models.

So that one was done right.
