NEWS... 1994 OZONE ASSESSMENT
international panel of scientists has concluded that ozone
depletion will peak in 1998, and gradually return to normal
levels in less than 50 years if the requirements of the Montreal
Protocol continue to be followed. Earlier estimates had projected
a 100-year recovery period. Further measures that could speed
recovery are limited, although tighter controls on
hydrofluorocarbons and methyl bromide would help.
