From the National Post:
A chemical banned around the globe for the last 30 years has made an unfortunate resurgence. And all signs, in a new study, point to China as the culprit.
In the 1980s, countries came together to sign The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, a landmark treaty designed to halt and reduce the production of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), chemicals used in fridges and foams that had the side effect of tearing through the Earth’s ozone layer.
The Montreal Protocol has been signed by 197 countries around the world, including Canada, the U.S., and China. As the ozone layer in our upper atmosphere slowly depleted — letting in an increasing amount of the sun’s ultraviolet rays — the protocol contributed to a significant reduction in harmful CFCs, which then allowed for a slow healing of the damaged ozone layer.
Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will do something like drag China in her next livestream on Instagram?

We are literally going to have to take control of China to actually be sure they aren't screwing something up. https://t.co/w2BekkIHGO

And everyone bookmark this tweet for the next time a Dem starts talking about China’s economic miracle:
Whoa, hold up — are you suggesting that China's Recent Economic Rise was built upon lies, IP theft, and hilarious amounts of pollution? https://t.co/3oRqdldnuT

You know, like Rep. Ro Khanna did just last week:
