Ozone on track to make full recovery

Remember the hole in the ozone layer? Well, it has officially stopped growing. Was it getting bigger? Yes, although not by much anymore. A UN study released this week reported that the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica is no longer getting bigger, and should start shrinking within the next 10 years or so. Experts point to a 1987 ban of ozone depleting manmade gases as the key factor to stopping its destruction. The report also mentions a small increase of the total ozone—a good sign overall ozone health is improving substantially.
