Welcome! The Ozone Hole Is Smaller!

Welcome to my blog. I have no idea what I'm doing, but I hope it will be interesting to you. I'm very concerned about the environment and the state of our world, and every day there seems to be a lot of depressing news. This past week there was some good news on the environmental front. The ozone hole is continuing to shrink, and it's 30 percent smaller than it was last year, which was record size. Maybe we've turned this thing around. Maybe not. Scientists say that there is a natural fluctuation that occurs, so this might not be "indicative of a long-term trend." Still, I hold out hope that if we all focus on problems such as this, we can take corrective action to make things better.
