It can be hard to find good news about the future so here is a win for the environment. I remember when holes in the Ozone Layer were some of the biggest climate emergencies we were facing. Lets hope we do the same with carbon emmisions!

Via Gizmodo:

The Montreal Protocol, an international treaty to protect our ozone signed in 1987, has been a success, declared the U.N.-backed scientific panel in a report first released in October 2022 and formally presented on Monday at the American Meteorological Society meeting.

Despite a major setback in the 2010’s, the amount of ozone-depleting chemicals emitted worldwide has decreased since 2018. In sum, nearly 99% of those harmful compounds have been phased out since the 1980’s, according to a Monday press release. If all continues according to plan, the ozone layer is expected to recover to pre-1980 levels worldwide, including over the Antarctic, by 2066, the assessment says.
