China’s been emitting illegal greenhouse gases that destroys ozone layer

Researchers have pinpointed the major sources of a mysterious rise in a dangerous, ozone-destroying chemical. CFC-11 was used for home insulation but global production was due to be phased out in 2010. However, scientists have noted a spike in the amount of CFCs in the atmosphere in recent years. A new study says this is mostly being caused by new gas production in eastern provinces of China.
