    Thumbs up Ozone Hole May Disappear by 2050

    The ozone hole over the Antarctic is likely to begin contracting in the future and may disappear by 2050 because of a reduction in the release of chlorofluorocarbons and other ozone-depleting gases, according to a team of Japanese scientists.


    The findings are based on a series of numerical simulations carried out by Eiji Akiyoshi of the National Institute for Environmental Studies, near Tokyo, using projected emissions of chlorofluorocarbons and other gases blamed for the ozone hole.

    According to a report posted Friday on the institute's Web site, the hole is at its largest now but is likely to gradually start contracting around 2020 and disappear by around 2050.

    The team's findings are in line with research by other scientists.

    Looks like I'll have to keep on wearing sunscreen for a few years.

    It must be closing up because I gave up aerosol hairspray in the 70's.

    Now what am I going to do about those melting glaciers???????

    That's great news. At this point, all I thought we could hope for was that it wouldn't get bigger. I thought once it was damaged it was permanent/irreversible.

    Stop putting ice into your lemonade, maybe the saved ice will keep the glaciers intact.
