The Ozone Layer is on Track to Recover in the Coming Decades

The UN's panel of experts has found that the Earth's ozone layer is recovering due to decades of efforts to eliminate ozone-damaging chemicals. The ozone layer acts as a shield in the stratosphere, protecting humans and the environment from harmful UV radiation. This progress is a result of international action taken after the discovery of a hole in the ozone layer in 1985, which was linked to the use of chemicals like chlorofluorocarbons in products like aerosol sprays and refrigerants. Great!
