Largest Arctic ozone hole ever recorded is now closed

The largest ozone hole to ever open up over the Arctic has closed. Scientists monitoring the hole at the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service announced the closure last week. Scientists clarified that the ongoing lockdowns, driving a reduction in air pollution, was not the reason for the closure. ’It’s been driven by an unusually strong and long-lived polar vortex’, the team said.

"It's been driven by an unusually strong and long-lived polar vortex, and isn't related to air quality changes." -- So something happened with the climate and it WAS NOT due to human activity? I call shenanigans.

Only now they're telling us, when it's too late. Just imagine all the opportunities while it was still open.
