(Worthy News) – The ozone layer is steadily repairing itself following a drastic global reduction in the use of ozone-depleting substances, the UN’s environmental agency has found.
The world’s ozone layer is on track to be completely healed by the 2060s, according to modeling by the UN’s environmental agency (UNEP).
In the past 19-years, parts of the ozone layer have recovered at a rate of one to three percent every ten years, UNEP has found. If this continues, the Northern Hemisphere’s ozone layer is set to heal completely by the 2030s, the Southern Hemisphere by the 2050s, and the polar regions in the following decade.

Thanks to the #MontrealProtocol the ozone hole is expected to gradually close, with ozone returning to 1980 values by the 2060s.
