The enormous danger ozone depletion poses to the entire world, as well as the clear feasibility of using other chemicals and processes in place of ozone-depleting chemicals, was recognised in 1987 when countries took the historic step of signing the first international environmental treaty: the Montreal Protocol. Yet, the reduction called for by the protocol, of 50 per cent of 1986 production levels by the year 2000, is seriously inadequate and a complete phase out is needed.
