"Researchers say that they have pinpointed the major sources of a mysterious recent rise in a dangerous, ozone-destroying chemical.

"CFC-11 was primarily used for home insulation but global production was due to be phased out in 2010.

"But scientists have seen a big slowdown in the rate of depletion over the past six years.

"This new study says this is mostly being caused by new gas production in eastern provinces of China."

It will be interesting to see how China reacts to the news.  It is quite possible that they will move quickly to shut down the industry in question.  On the other hand, there is the looming trade war.

They deny it's true.
