We can stop Ozone Depletion!

In the past 25 years, the Ozone hole has been getting larger and larger, because of you and I.
There had been a steady decline in the Earth's ozone layer, caused in part by gasses released by aerosol spray cans and refrigerants, reducing the ozone layer's ability to absorb ultraviolet radiation.
A major effect of Ozone Depletion are higher UV levels, which can lead to melanoma skin cancer, which is the most serious type of skin cancer forming in cells. It can also cause cataracts, which is an eye disease that clouds the eye lens. UVB rays can have an impact on plants. Which, of course, produces most of our oxygen.
If we continue to do this, there is a big chance by 2040, the world and all of humanity will burn to crisps.
This beneficial ozone has been partially destroyed by man made chemicals, causing what is sometimes called a "hole in the ozone." The good news is, this hole is diminishing. Help us in stopping Ozone depletion!
