So Whose to Blame?

Okay, here's something interesting. I know some people who don't believe global warming is our fault. Now, before I get any angry comments, I'm not sure if their theory is a good one or not.
According to this theory, the sun builds up energy over time, only letting out a small amount. But ever thousands of millions of years (a lot of years), the sun lets out all that pent up energy in the form of energy blasts. The sun hit the ozone and left a hole.
Coincidentally, that was when cars had just become popular, but there are no coincidences, are there?
Here's the part that makes me wonder if its true: there are more cars than EVER now, and the hole's getting smaller.

Keep in mind I got this entire thing from my sixth grade social studies teacher, who's kind of crazy.

I love the picture.

To the best of my knowledge, humans are not, in fact, causing global warming. I first got this from a Michael Crichton novel (State of Fear), so I wasn't sure what to do with it. I've heard it since repeated over and over again, and I'm starting to get the idea that, in fact, global warming is an inevitable process we have no control over. Really, I think it's fairly arrogant of us (as humans) to think that we could accidentally cause something so enormous to happen. Then again, deforestation is ours, so I guess it's not that ridiculous.

The hole in the ozone is not anyone's fault, really. It is a natural occurance and gets thinner and thicker every year. Scientists seem to only take samples of it when it is at its thinnest, and then go and make a fuss about it.
