A rare bit of good news about the environment.
NASA scientists say the giant hole in the Earth's protective ozone layer is shrinking, and has shriveled to its smallest peak since 1988. "It's like hurricanes. Some years there are fewer hurricanes that come onshore . . . this is a year in which the weather conditions led to better ozone (formation)," Paul A. Newman said, a chief Earth scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
