It's recovering.
World leaders and policy makers put their heads together and figured out a way to stop the hemorrhaging.

For the first time in 35 years, scientists have seen a marked improvement.

Now what we need is a real effort to do the same with climate change.  The fight to save the ozone was a great example of what can be achieved when government and industries work together to solve isssues.  Time to come together on climate change also and keep working on the Ozone also.

Nice posting, very informative.  Its good to see some positive news on humans effects on the planet and i really do appreciate the way this posting shows that we as humans can make a real differance on a global scale.

It's good to read that we - humans- finally did something good for the planet as last news were depressing with all the negative impact.

Popular Science, Nov. 11, 2015.
The ozone hole over Antarctica is now larger than North America, nearing record-size set in 2006.

Legislation and restrictions have reduced ozone-depleting chemicals like chlorofluorocarbons in the atmosphere, and the ozone layer is starting to slowly repair its holes. But those chemicals still concentrate around the poles during spring and summer (it's currently summer in Antarctica), eating a seasonal hole in the ozone layer every year. As of October, the ozone hole over Antarctica was roughly 10 million square miles in size, slightly smaller than it was nine years ago when it was 10.42 million square miles across.
