The government today termed the Montreal Protocol as the "most successful" treaty on ozone layer protection which could serve as a model for cooperation on issues related to climate change.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation, the latest threat to seas and oceans besides global warming and atmospheric carbon.
A new study by University of Toronto physicists has shown that climate change will lead to less ultraviolet radiation over northern high latitudes.
