New Directions in Safeguarding the PlanetBook - 1991
The drive to protect the planet against the effects of ozone layer depletion began not long ago with the derided theories of a handful of iconoclastic scientists. Most observers believed that an international accord to limit the use of chemicals essential to modern life would be impossible in the face of scientific uncertainties and the opposition of powerful commerical interests. But in an amazingly short time we now have as precedent-setting treaty to protect the Earth: the Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer.
