Some believe that they have found that the ozone layer is being damaged, reported it.

Politicians have then pushed and been a pain-in-the-tush to make sure some candidate chemicals were banned while scientists continue to prove their theory.

They helped kill the Concorde, which was shown to damage the ozone layer.

(Not true! The Concord flight was discontinued due to age of the aircraft and a major incident killing everyone on board due to their age.)

Most of them are implementing personal choices that reduce their contributions to ozone layer depletion.

Most Science experts agree that the Ozone layer's thinning is only at the poles and only during their winter months. They realize that the vast bulk, if not all, of the thinning is natural and due to a lack of sunlight. The banning of chemicals that are heavier then air to help a portion of our atmosphere that is very high is actually a very hard sell. Logic and honesty can not be used. Items heavier then air seldom fly to levels of 50,000 feet.

They also realize that the greatest thinning (thus the largest hole) happened in the 1830's which was well before cfc's were in use. We know that this "hole" is caused by a lack of sunlight in the affected areas, not cfc's.

Scientists study the ozone layer. They do it by satellites.

Yes. Scientists hope that it will be renewed by around 2050.

There is an ozone layer. Scientists have confirmed that.

Carbon dioxide, CO2, has very little to do with the ozone layer. The ozone layer will repair itself if we stop damaging it, which we have, by banning CFCs, chlorofluorocarbon gases, the chlorine of which was destroying the ozone molecules. Scientists hope the ozone layer will be completely restored by 2060.

In order to repair the ozone layer, we must decrease the use of ozone depleting substances. These are the ones containing CFC's which deplete the ozone layer.

Scientists have discovered shocking things about ozone. It is that ozone has a hole in it.

Scientists hope the ozone layer will have recovered by around 2050.

The ozone layer has a hole.It was proven by scientists.

There is an ozone layer was confirmed by scientists. Charles Fabry discovered it.

They did it in 1880. It is a layer of ozone molecules.

See "What makes scientists think the ozone layer is thinning?"

The ozone layer is really thinning. This is evident from the study of scientists.

There are many experts on ozone layer. Those are scientists sitting in labs.

They are depleting the ozone layer. they react with ozone and deplete it.

Scientists predict that the ozone layer is being destroyed. The destruction has been due to the CFC's that eat up.

Yes, scientists know what is causing the ozone layer to disappear. It is the continues use of ozone depleting substances.

Lightning does cause ozone replenishment. However it cannot repair ozone. It is because the ozone gas is too large to be replenished.

Scientist can fix ozone layer. They can do it if CFC emissions can be stopped.

Ozone layer is being monitored by scientists. Satellites are roaming in space for it.

Scientists collected traces of ozone over the poles. There they found that the ozone was depleting.

See "Can the hole in the Ozone layer be fixed?"we have to plant trees

Scientists believe that the ozone layer is disappearing because there is a large hole in it. This hole was not there years ago.

There are small amounts of a gas called Ozone in the earth's upper atmosphere scientists call this Ozone Layer

Maybe ========================== Did the person that ask this question mean "healing of the ozone layer" or "repair of the ozone layer", instead of "separation"?

Accouring to the scientists, the main cause of depletion of ozone layer is the use of CFc's. These CFCs react with ozone present in the ozone layer and deplete it.
