How Would The Ozone Layer Mending Impact The Ecosystems In Canada

Many news stories have been showing how unusual and surprising this winter was for Canadians. Unexpected storms hit cities across the country, with very low and harsh temperatures in some parts of Canada and very abnormal heating in other provinces. This winter has made things very hard for weather forecasting companies because of these unprecedented weather phenomena.

Many citizens think this atypicality’s leading causes are climate change and global warming. Journalists have begun to mention the cons of this weird weather, and many are worried.

Although, just last month, a report was released by the United Nations (U.N.) stating that the ozone layer has been mending itself in the past years and that the Montreal Protocol has played a big part in the mending of the ozone layer. “The 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and its succeeding amendments, adjustments, and decisions were subsequently negotiated to control the consumption and production of anthropogenic ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) and some hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).”

This news shocked many people worldwide, and many wonder how the ozone layer’s mending will influence Canada. The mending of the ozone layer has many positive impacts on the ecosystems. A recent study has mentioned that “The avoided ultraviolet radiation and climate change also have co-benefits for plants and their capacity to store carbon through photosynthesis,” moreover, this will affect the agriculture industry in Canada, as plants will be able to grow faster and more efficiently than usual.

Other studies have shown that more than two million people will be saved from skin cancer as the ozone layer recovers. According to World Cancer Research Fund International, Canada is ranked fourth worldwide in non-melanoma skin cancer.

Finally, many gases that play a massive role in global warming and the depletion of the ozone layer have been banned, which gives hope that the repair of the ozone layer will help the atmosphere cool.
