Yeah running around trying to find face masks, feeling like the world was coming to an end… glad those things didn’t last!

I picked up some N-95 masks last month just in case.

Wasn't most of the ozone repaired awhile ago?

It started too after we got rid of CFC’s, I think it’s still on track to restoration by 2050, takes a while though

CFCs, that's what it was. Thank you haha.

I took an EPA test to handle refrigerants.. Cfc's were horrible. 1 molecule of cfc would destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone.

Yeah wasn't there a bunch of news about that in past few years? To the effect of "the ozone layer has been recovering since the start of the pandemic"

That does suck, but I thought the ozone hole wasn’t that big of a deal anymore

I thought the ozone hole was closing! So you're telling me my childhood fears have come back to haunt me?
