Ozone layer is improving

And yet Al "I invented the internet" Gore is still searching for the elusive proof that global warming "manbearpig" really exists. (ed note: if you missed the manbearpig South Park episode, you missed a great one...)

LONDON (Reuters) - The ozone layer is showing signs of recovering, thanks to a drop in ozone-depleting chemicals, but it is unlikely to stabilize at pre-1980 levels, researchers said on Wednesday

Depletion of the earth's protective ozone layer is caused by the chemical action of chlorine and bromine released by man-made chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which are used in aerosol sprays and cooling equipment.

And with CFC use majorly reduced, what was the single biggest threat to the ozone in the past couple decades? Volcanic eruptions.

But I'm sure it's only a matter of time unitl they figure out a way to pin those on the human race as well...
