According to a new report for UN, the ozone layer will be as good as new again in 2060. The scientists behind the report say that the reason for this positive news is the Montreal Protocol, which they describe as very important and effective. The Montreal Protocol is an international agreement that is made to protect the ozone layer. Earth is very protected by the ozone layer, which protects the earth from ultraviolet light, which could be damaging to life on earth. For an example, it could lead to skin cancer.
The about 300 scientists that has made this report expects the ozone layer to be at the same level in 2060, as it was in 1980. On the other hand, the hole in the ozone layer that is located over the Antarctic will not get better in the nearest future. The scientists actually mean that it could get even bigger because of the climate changes. They are struggling to find out the complicated connection between the global warming and the holes in the ozone layer. In the Antarctic, the effect on the ozone hole and the climate on the ground are very obvious.
