Simon says...

Ozone hole nears record size;

The seasonal ozone hole over Antarctica has widened to a near-record size, at approximately 27 million square km, the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said today.

Despite the statistic, WMO ozone expert Dr Geir Braathen did not expect the record measurement of 28 million square km, which was reached in 2003, to be broken.

The hole in the ozone layer? That is so late 20th Century. What about the hole in the ho-zone?
