Earth's ozone layer gives us vital protection from solar UV radiation. Since the CFC revelations, it was thought that all ozone-destroying chemicals had been eliminated through the Montreal Protocol.
Now, an international team led by David Oram at the University of East Anglia, has discovered that a group of chemicals known as chlorocarbons are destroying the ozone layer and that China is responsible for over 50% of emissions. See today's www.spaceweather.com for a fuller treatment.
