Réagir: pollution - OZONE: À QUAND UN RETOUR À LA NORMALE ?
Duration: January 1980 - December 2006
Stratospheric ozone is protecting us by blocking harmful UV radiations that can
cause skin cancer, genetic damage, and eye damage, and harm marine life.
Scientists detected ozone depletion since several decades; this is caused by emission
of halocarbons, such as Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC).
