UN General Secretary Antonio Guterres said,"We must be careful not to neglect the ozone layer as we rightly focus our energies on tackling climate change." According to a tweet by UNEP "The Montreal Protocol has averted more than 135 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions going into the atmosphere from 1990-2010". UNEP is also hopeful of the estimates that show that the ozone layer will be restored to its stage of 1980 by the 2060s.

Last year, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported the global concentration of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is still steadily on the rise, with the obvious warming effects on the planet and ozone-teardown. Also according to a French study, the average temperature of Earth will be increased to 7-degree celsius towards the end of the century.
Twitter was also full of responsibility emotion ridden tweets. Even Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee tweeted and urged people to work together to save the environment.
