Ozone Layer Most Fragile on Record
By Paul Brown

Fears over increase in skin cancer as scientists report that
climate change continues to destroy the earth's protection.
The protective ozone layer over the Arctic has thinned this
winter to the lowest levels since records began, alarming scientists
who believed it had begun to heal.
The increased loss of ozone allows more harmful ultraviolet light
to reach the earth's surface, making children and outdoor enthusiasts
such as skiers more vulnerable to skin cancer - a disease which is
already dramatically increasing.
Scientists yesterday reinforced the warning that people going out
in the sun this summer should protect themselves with creams and hats.
