The United States played an important role in the negotiations on the Montreal Protocol. In the 1970s, evidence emerged that CFCs used in everyday household products, such as air conditioners and refrigerators, reduced the earth`s protective ozone layer and increased the level of ultraviolet rays reaching the planet`s surface. The United States, allies and stakeholders, supported strict controls on the production and consumption of SDOs such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons; Promoting international cooperation; The Committee on Food, Research and Policy of Food Research and Policy and Policy of the United States In 1988, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved the ratification of the Montreal Protocol by the United States and the treaty has continued to be supported by all parties over the past thirty years. Throughout its history, the Montreal Protocol has received the support of the vast majority of American industry as well as environmentalists. The Montreal Protocol is widely regarded as the most successful agreement on environmental protection. It contains a binding timetable for the abandonment of ozone-depleting substances. This schedule has been regularly reviewed, accelerating release dates, in accordance with scientific understanding and technological advances. A cold chain is a series of networked facilities (packing houses, refrigerated warehouses, refrigerated transport, etc.) that allow perishable foods to maintain their freshness and quality during transport.
Access to the cold chain allows local producers to connect to quality markets, locally, nationally and internationally. The ability to store and transport perishable food in a temperature-regulated environment not only ensures quality and safety, but reduces overall food loss, while improving economic benefits and improving sustainability. The Montreal Protocol turned 30 this month and was a pioneering ecological success that serves as a model for solving other problems, even though it also has unfinished problems. And yet, the United States was one of the first countries to ratify the protocol and was at the forefront of revisions that accelerated the abandonment of ozone-destroying chemicals, Doniger said. The industry quickly developed new products and entered with the abandonment of old chemicals. Australia is playing an active role in the ongoing negotiations on the Montreal Protocol and ensuring that new ozone protection measures are scientifically sound and technically feasible, and that developing countries receive support in their efforts to phase out ozone-depleting substances and CFCs. The protocol divided countries into two groups: Schedule I included industrialized countries and non-annex I referred to developing countries. The protocol has set emission restrictions only for Schedule I countries.
Non-Schedule I countries have participated in projects to reduce emissions in their countries. Countries that have ratified the Kyoto Protocol have been allocated to maximum levels of CO2 emissions during certain periods and have participated in the exchange of emission credits. If a country expelled more than its assigned limit, it would be penalized by obtaining a lower emission limit in the next period. At the Rome meeting, the parties were warned of an unexpected increase in global emissions of trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11). Why is it so, and what is planned to address it? The combined effects of UV levels that could literally burn the skin in five minutes and the hot, stormy weather is something that no one would live or wish for their grandchildren, said Rolando Garcia, a chief scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. It is essential that we remain convinced that we can truly resolve these issues that are crucial to our survival. We humans have already solved big problems in many areas
