This really is good news and it is worth quoting a bit:

Commenting on the report, Brian Gardiner, one of the British Antarctic 
Survey scientists who discovered the Antarctic ozone hole in 1985, said 
political will was needed to tackle the other huge environmental issues 
facing the planet.

"The Montreal Protocol is the first international treaty that holds out the 
promise of solving a global environmental problem before it becomes a 
disaster," he told BBC News Online.

"We should learn from that and attack the bigger problem of climate change 
by achieving intergovernmental agreement to limit the burning of fossil 
fuels before the consequences of that become a disaster."

Amen to that . .
