Highlight Climate-forcing F-gases – new report published
Fluorinated gases (F-gases) are emitted into the atmosphere in relatively small quantities, but their effect on climate change is increasingly significant. These substances are very powerful greenhouse gases, with a warming effect thousands of times greater than CO2 in many cases.

Protecting the ozone layer while also preventing climate change
Forty years ago, scientists warned that a hole in the layer of ozone surrounding the earth could have serious effects on human health and the environment. This problem is being solved thanks to a global agreement to stop the use of ozone-depleting chemicals that damage the ozone layer. But now scientists are concerned that the substances used to replace these ozone-depleting chemicals are acting to trap heat inside the earth, exacerbating the greenhouse effect. Can policymakers protect the ozone layer while also helping prevent climate change?
