Is the hole in the ozone getting any smaller?

    Scientists do not expect the ozone hole to get decrease significantly for at least a decade. The ozone hole, located over the Antarctic, reaches it’s maxium peak during the month of September. This is caused by the cold temperatures and sunlight appearing over the Antarctic horizon, which creates chemical reactions that destroy the ozone. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), are man-made chemicals that create the chlorine in these chemical reactions. Although the production of CFCs have stopped, CFCs last in the atmosphere for up to 100 years.
