“The Hole Story”.

The ozone layer. It’s the shield that protects us from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. As most of us know it’s got a hole in it and it’s getting bigger, and the experts tell us it will only get worse before it gets better. Even if we stop using all ozone eating chemicals today the effects of thousands of tonnes already in the atmosphere will be active for a century from now. In a couple of weeks the hole in the ozone will break up and parts of that ozone deprived air may head towards New Zealand.
