North American Countries Target “Super” Greenhouse Gases Through Strengthened Ozone Treaty
Green Car Congress
APRIL 30, 2010
The US, Canada, and Mexico have submitted a proposal to strengthen climate protection under the Montreal Protocol— the international treaty that phases out the production of a number of substances responsible for ozone depletion. If accepted by the other Montreal Protocol Parties, the proposal would deliver climate mitigation equivalent to preventing more than 100 billion tonnes of CO 2 emissions. The Federated States of Micronesia submitted a similar proposal on HFCs as well.
