A new study has found that some chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the atmosphere reached record levels in 2020, despite being banned under the Montreal Protocol signed in 1987. According to the study, there was an increase in five CFCs measured in the atmosphere between 2010 and 2020, resulting in the warming of the atmosphere. The increase in CFC levels could be due to the emission of CFCs in the production of chemicals to replace CFCs.
