  • Ozone hole represents rare climate success story

    If you haven’t heard about the hole in the ozone layer for a while, that’s because it stopped growing years ago — and it’s now shrinking and on the path to be eliminated by 2065. A climate scientist explains how this rare climate success story happened, and lessons we can take from it as climate change continues to threaten the planet.
