The article reports on the agreement of the 193 Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer to strengthen their treaty to provide added protection for the ozone layer and the climate system. The Parties will collect and destroy ozone-depleting substances from stockpiles and from discarded products and equipment, which will be emitted by 2015 through the Montreal Protocol. According to Romina Picolotti, Argentina's Minister of Environment, they recognize the importance of near term and long term climate mitigation.
