UN Report Says Efforts To Restore Ozone Layer Will Succeed In Decades

Ozone layer

The United Nations says human action to save the ozone layer has worked as hoped, and it may recover within decades. 

A report co-produced by UN, US, and EU agencies, says an international agreement in 1987 – known as the Montreal Protocol – which was designed to stop using the harmful chemicals that were damaging the layer has been successful. 

The ozone layer is a thin part of the Earth’s atmosphere that absorbs most of the ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. 

Ultraviolet rays can damage DNA and cause sunburn, increasing the long-term risk of problems such as skin cancer.

The report further says if current policies are maintained, the ozone layer will be restored at different points in different places.
