Title: On Our Radar: Gaping Hole in Artic Ozone

Author: New York Times

Main Idea: Due to the serious amount of damage, a hole has formed in the ozone layer over the Arctic

Summary:

1) For the first time since record-keeping began, destruction of the ozone layer over the Arctic in early 2011 was comparable to that in the Antarctic ozone hole

2) This hole forms every spring and threat animal life

3) European Union’s plan to make foreign carriers start paying for their pollution

Opinion: No, it was factual

Question: How serious is the damage? Does the whole affect the Earth's climate in any way?

Is this article important to science?: Yes, because it informs us on the destruction of our ozone layer
