[ Banned, Ozone-Depleting Chemical Is Still Being Produced Somewhere, Scientists Say ]

An image provided by NOAA shows the ozone hole in 2015. NOAA scientists now say emissions of one ozone-depleting chemical appear to be rising, even though the chemical has been banned and reported production has been at zero for years.

Trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, hurts the ozone layer and was supposed to have been phased out of production by 2010. Supposedly. But NOAA scientists say CFC-11 emissions began to rise after 2012.
