go directly to report, HTML _ IB89021 - Stratospheric Ozone Depletion: Regulatory issues
4-Nov-1996; David E. Gushee; 13 p.
Abstract: For two decades, scientists have been warning that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and Halons (bromine-containing fluorocarbons) may deplete the stratospheric ozone shield that screens out some of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and thus regulates the amounts which reach the Earth's surface. CFCs have.... [expand]  [read report]
