A hole in the ozone layer, spanning over the top of Antarctica, is claimed to mend itself by the year 2066. “Our success in phasing out ozone-eating chemicals shows us what can and must be done- as a matter of urgency- to transition away from fossil fuels, reduce greenhouse gasses and so limit temperature increase,” Secretary General Professor Petteri Tallas of the World Meteorological Organization said.

The result of the mend is “saving 2 million people every year from skin cancer,” United Nations Environment Programme Director, Inger Anderson, said. Around the world, the emission of harmful chemicals and substances have been contributing to events like this, but humanity’s methods to recover prove to be working effectively.
