Finally some good climate news!
A new United Nations report says Earth’s protective ozone layer is slowly healing and at its current pace, it could fully mend the hole over Antarctica by 2066.
The report comes after more than 35 years after every nation in the world agreed to stop producing chemicals that destroy the ozone layer in Earth’s atmosphere.
The World Meteorological Organization released a statement saying:
“Ozone action sets a precedent for climate action. Our success in phasing out ozone-eating chemicals shows us what can and must be done, as a matter of urgency, to transition away from fossil fuels, reduce greenhouse gases and so limit temperature increase.”
