New threats to the ozone layer


Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at some of the newer threats to Earth’s ozone layer.

According to a recent NASA report, stratospheric ozone could be significantly affected by both climate change and the continued release of banned chemicals.

Although the ozone layer has shown solid recovery progress following the Montreal Protocol, which banned chemicals that destroy ozone, some industrial compounds that are still legal can also eat away at ozone.
