Well we've been phasing out Chlorofluorocarbons (aka Freon) since 1989, so things should be improving.

CFCs were brought under control by simply banning their production. Taxes were not involved.

There are a few CFC-related chemicals still in use that have deleterious effects on the ozone layer. They should also be banned.
