The two scientists at Environment and climate change Canada were staring at computer model forecasts of ozone gas. Up in the Earth's atmosphere, the ozone layer helps block harmful ultraviolet radiation. But closer to the surface, the reactive gas has ...
Joplin, MO. - You've probably heard of the gas called ozone, but where it's found has a big impact on whether it's good or bad for humans and the environment.
A research company is hoping to break several aviation world records and be the first to have an air glider reach the edge of space without a jet engine or rockets.
The ozone layer keeps out harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun and shields the earth from its damaging effects. It was quickly discovered that CFCs were to blame.

Everything from heat-strokes, to skin cancer (confusing climate change with ozone layer depletion) came up for discussion. In a sense this reflected a certain idea of climate change being a break from the past, from a more ordered and understandable time.
There is a study published in #Nature climate change that should not be underestimated. According to the report, half of the population of the world will experience deadly heat waves at the end of the century.
ATAL will also have impact on stratospheric ozone though heterogeneous chemistry, as aerosols have taken an important role in the depletion of the ozone layer 20~30 years ago. Owing to these important issues, ATAL has received much attention in the ...
The ozone layer, which protects us from ultraviolet radiation coming from the sun, is undergoing depletion now more than it has in the past.
Remember that we dealt incrementally with the gases that were destroying the ozone layer, and this saved us from an ozone catastrophe.
Pfeilsticker coordinated an EU-funded research project called SHIVA to demonstrate that short-lived halogen-containing gases deplete as much ozone as the pollutants banned by the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement to protect the ozone layer ...
prosecutors say the suspect imported the chemical compound under the pretense that he was actually bringing into the United States a safe refrigerant that does not destroy the ozone layer. Mahmoud Alkabbani, 63, the owner of USA Car Parts, entered his ...
Thirty years back, Reagan sent the Montreal Agreement for the Senate`s ratification stating that, "In this historic agreement, the international community undertakes cooperative measures to protect a vital global resource of ozone layer." The Senate ...
Then the gas began to build up and form the planet's protective ozone layer and, eventually, became the breathable atmosphere we know today.
... to the indictment, Alkabbani entered into an agreement with a Chinese company to purchase R-22. The 2013 contract with the Chinese company listed the product as R-134a, which is not regulated by the Clean Air Act and does not deplete the ozone layer.
Environmental Protection Agency regulations, issued under sections of the Clean Air Act phase out the production and import of ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbons such as R-22, also known as Freon, by 2020 in accordance with the Montreal Protocol.
Remember the hole in the ozone layer? The three-atom oxygen molecules reside 12-19 miles up in the stratosphere. This protective layer absorbs most of the ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
Isn't the ozone layer the stratospheric sunscreen that protects us all from frying to a crisp in the sun's harmful rays?
But no official announcement came from any of the world governments, instead, there are indirect proclamations like global warming, depletion of the ozone layer, drastic climatic changes which imply some message to the world people. So when the world ...
Thereafter, WED has unfailingly been observed worldwide to address such issues as climate change (desertification, global warming, ozone layer depletion, pollution, etc); over-grazing; afforestation; poaching and other wildlife-related crimes... This ...
Thirty years back, Reagan sent the Montreal Agreement for the Senate's ratification stating that, "In this historic agreement, the international community undertakes cooperative measures to protect a vital global resource of ozone layer." The Senate ...
"When scientists agreed that chlorofluorocarbons were causing a hole in the ozone layer, we came together and joined 197 other countries and joined the Montreal Protocol," Walton says.
It's summer, which means that you're gonna have to get out on the water if you want relief from the heat. Soon the ozone layer will be destroyed entirely, and the polar caps will melt, and the ghastly heat will be trapped in our atmosphere for time ...
Because the Montreal Protocol did achieve some of the resulted improvements in ozone thinning related to those specific banned compounds, there may have been a mistaken impression the overall thinning of the ozone layer had been "fixed." This entire ...
One potential research goal, according to Keutsch, would be to find a chemical that might be used to shade the Earth without harming the stratosphere's ozone layer, which protects humans against the sun's ultraviolet light that can cause skin cancer ...
Let's face it: With summer comes the opportunity for all kinds of skin problems. This includes attacks by mosquitoes and ticks; sporting activities where bumps, bruises, cuts and abrasions abound; and the notorious ultraviolet radiation from the sun ...
Shortly after Sunday's hellacious thunderstorms moved east, I came across a provocative piece of new research showing that these severe events create conditions that may be thinning the ozone layer across the central United States, including Minnesota.
I ran across a neat article recently that talks about the ozone layer. There's always the broad discussion about the loss of ozone in the lower stratosphere when it comes to the planet.
Back in 1974 two scientists postulated a link between the depletion of the ozone layer above Antarctica and the increasing use of CFCs, which were used in refrigerators, cleaning solvents, as aerosol propellants and in the manufacture of plastic foams.
The hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica has more far-reaching consequences than previously assumed. A study by Bernese climate researchers has now shown that it even affects precipitation in the tropical regions of the Pacific, 10,000 kilometres away.
New research suggests that frequent summertime storms in the Great Plains region could be depleting the protective ozone layer in the upper atmosphere, putting humans at increased risk of unhealthy exposure to ultraviolet radiation. And some scientists ...

Though improved coolants have been introduced, harming of the ozone layer continues. Heating and cooling have been listed among the major consumers of electricity in developed nations and India is catching up.
The big success was the ozone layer, which protects life from destructive UV rays. It took 15 years from the discovery of the hole in ozone layer for the Montreal Protocol in 1989 to mandate the end of the use of ozone-destroying fluorocarbons. But it ...
More frequent and severe summer storms are eroding the ozone layer over the central United States. According to new NEXRAD observations, more than 4,000 summer storms penetrate the stratosphere over the Midwest each year -- far more than was ...

EDITOR: Former Secretary of State George Shultz spoke recently and caught my attention. Back in the 1980s, scientists said the ozone layer was being depleted by the use of chlorofluorocarbons. Some folks didn't believe it or agree with the science.
