New film explains the Arctic Ozone Layer

New film explains the Arctic Ozone Layer



31 October 2013

Concerns about how CFCs and other ozone-depleting substances have damaged the stratospheric ozone layer usually focus on the "ozone hole" over Antarctica.  Other parts of the ozone layer, however, are also affected by the release of harmful chemicals. To raise awareness about these broader impacts, a new film entitled The Arctic and the Ozone Layer: Stabilizing our Environment and Climate was launched at the recent annual Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer, held in Bangkok.  This film was produced jointly with UNEP Ozone Secretariat, OzonAction Branch, and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). It is available here on YouTube.
