Ozone Layer is the protector of us, from the environmental ecosystem to human life, this layer is saving us from the destroying Ultra Violet ray. But the increase in pollution is cut the balance of the Ozone layer. The layer is becoming very weak day by day. As we observe World Ozone Day on September 16, it is important to remember the delicate balance in our atmosphere.
We celebrating World Ozone Day for 35 years. In 1994 the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 16 September the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. The protection of the ozone layer was first to mention in the Vienna Convention. On the occasion, Inger Andersen, Executive Director of UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) shared a video message for the World Ozone Day where she said, “On OzoneDay we celebrate 35 yrs of the Vienna Convention to protect the Ozone Layer & its Montreal protocol, which united the world to cut out gases creating a hole in the ozone layer. We need this same sense of purpose & collaboration to address all environmental threats.”
In the 1970 scientists found out that the increasing pollution and the gases which are used in refrigerators and air conditioners for cooling were creating a hole in the ozone layer. After that scientists are in great concern about the dangerous UV rays of the sun. The harmful rays can create severe health issues including skin cancers. In 1985 there are many countries adopted the ‘Vienna Convention’ for the protection of the Ozone layer.
This year on World Ozone Day represent as “Ozone for life” which is a reminder for people to take care of the environment. We have to follow a protocol for reducing hydrofluorocarbon and greenhouse gases that are damaging our environment. We have to protect the Ozone layer for ourselves. We can minimize the cars which release carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides for saving financial resources and the environment. The plantation is one of the key of protection for the ozone layer.
