Good news! For the first time, direct satellite observations of the ozone hole over Antarctica have shown that ozone-destroying chlorine levels are declining and the ozone hole is recovering.
The chlorine decline results from the Montreal Protocol, an international ban on chlorine-containing chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), released by human activity. This has resulted in about 20 percent less ozone depletion than there was in 2005 — the first year that NASA's Aura satellite measured chlorine and ozone during the Antarctic winter.
Because chlorofluorocarbons take many years to break down, they will remain in the atmosphere for some time, continuing to deplete ozone. However, this study provides definitive evidence that the ozone layer will continue to heal in the future.

The global meat production and consumption have increased 20 percent in just the last 10 years, with harmful effects on the environment and public health as well as on the economy, according to research done by Worldwatch Institute. Large-scale meat production also has serious implications for the world’s climate. Animal waste releases methane and nitrous oxide, greenhouse gases that are 25 and 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide, respectively. Reduce the meat consumption seems to be the only solution.

Video by @PaulNicklen // Earlier this week, we shared a heartbreaking video of a starving polar bear. It was incredibly hard to watch, and sad to endure filming, but it provides an important perspective into the future for polar bears. Unless we curb carbon emissions and pursue solutions to achieve drawdown, this is the grim fate for species. The good news is that a wide array of both proven and promising new solutions already exist. Reforesting the oceans and restarting natural nutrient cycles can drawdown carbon, deacidify and cool surface waters, at the same time as producing sustainable food and biofuel. @Sea_Legacy went to the Canadian Arctic to document the effects of climate change. We found them. We also found healthy bears, like this. Follow me at @paulnicklen. @sea_legacy #turningthetide

Video by @PaulNicklen // My entire @Sea_Legacy team was pushing through their tears and emotions while documenting this dying polar bear. It’s a soul-crushing scene that still haunts me, but I know we need to share both the beautiful and the heartbreaking if we are going to break down the walls of apathy. This is what starvation looks like. The muscles atrophy. They have no energy. It’s a slow, painful death. When scientists say polar bears will be extinct in the next 100 years, I think of the global population of 25,000 bears dying in this manner. There is no band aid solution. There was no saving this individual bear. He was not dying of old age. People think that we can put platforms in the ocean or we can feed the odd starving bear. The simple truth is this—if the Earth continues to warm, we will lose bears and entire polar ecosystems. This bear certainly died within hours or days of this moment, but there are solutions. We must reduce our carbon footprint, eat the right food, stop cutting down our forests, and begin putting the Earth—our home—first. Please join us at @sea_legacy as we search for and implement solutions for the oceans and the animals that rely on them—including us humans. Thank you to our angel donors for your love and support and for keeping our team on location. Follow me at @paulnicklen to see more.
