It appears humans have the capability to stop or even reverse climate change without allowing President Joe Biden, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and other Democrats to gut the fossil fuel industry.
The United Nations Environment Program and the World Meteorological Organization released a report on Monday that found a “significant thickening” of the ozone layer, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“The thickening of the ozone layer means more protection for humans and other life,” the Journal noted.
“Airborne chemicals that destroy ozone are now declining for the first time, helping to repair the atmospheric layer that protects humans from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.”

The news emerges as Biden is considering a ban on stoves powered by natural gas, and as recent articles in the mainstream media have suggested climate change fuels domestic violence, and that it’s better to mate with and create short people because they use fewer resources than tall people.
According to a UN statement issued Monday, “The ozone layer is on track to recover within four decades, with the global phaseout of ozone-depleting chemicals already benefitting efforts to mitigate climate change.”
Scientists attributed this to the 1987 Montreal Protocol, an international agreement by which nations pledged to end the use of chemicals in aerosol sprays that were depleting the ozone layer.
The Protocol has led to a 99% reduction in the presence of such chemicals in the atmosphere, the UN said.

Consequently, the ozone layer will be back to its pre-1980 thickness, before the “hole” was discovered, between 2040 and 2066.
In a statement, Meg Seki, executive secretary of the UN Environment Program, called the report “fantastic news.”
Yet, for some, the news was only a sign to continue fearmongering and the war on modern life.
In the press release, WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas said, “Ozone action sets a precedent for climate action. Our success in phasing out ozone-eating chemicals shows us what can and must be done – as a matter of urgency – to transition away from fossil fuels, reduce greenhouse gases and so limit temperature increase.”
