Scientists of NASA and NOAA make the statement public that is hole in the ozone layer of our planet over Antarctica grows to the size of North America. But, also they stated that there is no reason to panic and people should be positive about the eco-system of earth. However, the fact is that no further enhancement in the size of the hole can be observed which a bit relief to hear. This whole report is presented by scientists of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on October 30.
From the report it is clear that the size hole has become 24.1 square kilometers, which is the size of North America. Well, it is a bit of alarming in nature but scientists can’t find it growing.
“The good news is ozone hole over the South Pole would be thinner in previous three years which was predicted by the scientists” Bryan Johnson of NOAA said.
Actually, the ozone layer is like ashield which protects us from the UV rays coming from the Sun, which can cause hazardous diseases like cancer, genetic mutilations and various harmful diseases to our plant species. Substances which can cause ozone depletion are halons consisting of Bromine and primarily chlorofluorocarbon compounds. These compounds are basically used in the manufacture of dry cleaning solvent, agent used in fire extinguishing purpose and refrigerants.
You will be happy to hear this “These ozone depleting elements have dropped to a record percentage of nine which is commendable as compare to previous four years situation.” From many years climate and environment issues have significantly grown up sue to the continuous depletion in ozone layer. Scientists all over the world are now cautious about the global warming and ozone layer depletion, additionally the main causes like “Chlorine declines”, “Greenhouse Emissions” and the heat radiation waves.
