According to the experts of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the ozone layer at the level of Europe will not recover its value of 1980 before the year 2049, just as in North America, Asia, Oceania, Latin America and Africa, while it will be necessary to wait until at least 2065 to find an acceptable value over Antarctica.


The hole in the ozone layer protects the earth from the sun's rays, accelerates its formation over Antarctica; bad news for the earthlings. It has appeared earlier than in previous years and is growing and should reach the southern tip of South America.

For the first time, it was in 1956 that the reduction of this layer of protection was detected over Antarctica.

Already in 2000, it had spread to a very populated area of Chile, that of Punta Arenas which had forced the authorities of the country to address the population of the city (120 000 inhabitants approximately) that avoid any prolonged exposure because in just 7 minutes the sunburn was assured…


Unfortunately, the United States and China are also emitting more and more greenhouse gases, even though initiatives in some US states give hope for an awareness that prevents the situation of life on earth from being too degraded. However, we can see from year to year, here in France, that the climate is evolving worryingly and that skin cancers are more and more frequently detected even in subjects who do not practice intensive "bronzing".

Sorry for the inconvenience.
