Healing the Ozone Hole

When the world gets its act together, it can actually solve big problems. Case in point: the ozone hole, which if everything goes according to plan could be healed up by the 2060s, according to a new report from the United Nations.

According to the report, a decades-old international treaty to ban ozone-depleting chemicals has led to their decline and “much more severe ozone depletion in the polar regions has been avoided.” There’s still work to be done, but this definitely falls into the Good News category.
