The Ozone Layer Shows Signs of Repairing Itself

 

Just ran across this little slice of hope from a LiveScience article earlier this year, available at http://www.livescience.com/55250-antarctic-ozone-hole-healing.html

Apparently the multinational Montreal Protocol to ban chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) back in 1987 has contributed to “reduced amounts of ozone depleting compounds,” and a marked decrease in the size of the ozone hole over the South Pole. This is evidence of well-intended and targeted efforts on a global scale having real and positive results for our planet.
