Depletion of the Ozone Layer 1987

I was reading about CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) and how they impact our environemnt.   CFC is an organic compound that contains carbonchlorine, and fluorine.  CFCs have been widely used as refrigerants, propellants (in aerosol applications), and solvents. The manufacture of such compounds is being phased out by theMontreal Protocol because they contribute to ozone depletion.

My quick research on the subject lead me to this video I found on You Tube talking about the depletion of the Ozone Layer in 1987.  Anyways I don’t want to start a rant, so I’ll let you watch this video if your interested.  Too bad we haven’t made stricter regulations for manufactures and other businesses alike.  It might be easier that way then to educate all the consumers…
