Ozone layer protected by the Montreal Protocol
The ozone layer is a region of Earth's stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation. It contains a high concentration of ozone. Life couldn't exist without this protective “ozone layer.” The ozone layer helps to protect life from harmful ultraviolet radiation. The sun gives off light, heat, and other types of radiation. Too much UV (ultraviolet) radiation can cause skin cancer, cataracts, and harm to plants and animals. Human activity has damaged this protective layer of the stratosphere and while ozone layer health has improved, there's still much to be done. The Montreal Protocol is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of numerous substances that are responsible for ozone depletion. The agreement set a mandatory timetable for the phasing out of main ozone-depleting substances and provided money to developing countries to help them phase out these substances. As a result, the ozone layer is showing the first signs of recovery. On World Ozone day, people from all over the world should want to hold talks benefits of the Ozone layer to spread awareness. Because “Protection of the ozone layer is our long-term commitment and responsibility". Each generation must take up the baton to ensure the continued protection of the Ozone layer.
