    Article in SMH, Model shows what ozone layer would look like without Montreal Protocol

    An ozone hole larger than Australia would have opened up over the Arctic if we had continued to use CFC for the last three decades.

    In 1987, countries agreed to Montreal Protocol which restricted the use of harmful ozone depleting chemicals.

    It is expected that the ozone hole will be fully repaired by 2050.

    Well done everyone, team effort yields good results.

    The article references study published in Nature Communications, Quantifying the ozone and ultraviolet benefits already achieved by the Montreal Protocol

    How come all the lobbying/lying money from "Big CFC" didn't derail the Montreal Protocol? Oh, yeah, the chemical companies actually make more money from the replacement refrigerants.
