Shocking rise in this greenhouse gas!

Jan 23, 2020 12:43 IST

Bristol University researchers find a shocking rise in the level of a particular greenhouse gas called hydrofluorocarbon HFC-23. In 2017, India and China, which are the two major sources, had reported that they completely eliminated emissions of the gas. However, research shows that concentrations of the gas, which is mostly used in fridges, inhalers and air conditioners, has increased at an alarming rate.This rise could have repercussion's for the Montreal Protocol, which was launched to to protect the stratospheric ozone layer.
