The Kid Should See This

Does ‘the ozone hole’ hold the secret to fixing climate change?

We don’t hear much about ‘the hole‘ in the ozone layer anymore. That’s because we’ve all but fixed it, thanks to consumer choices and a massive international agreement called the Montreal Protocol. Can we learn anything from this environmental success story that will help us fix climate change?

Miriam Nielsen explains how companies, consumers, and governments can come together to fix climate change in the same way that they came together to fix ozone layer depletion caused by chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the 1980s… and how that climate change fix has already started. Watch this episode of Hot Mess from PBS Digital Studios.
