Is there a real concern over the ozone layer disappearing?

Yes, there certainly is a real concern over the ozone layer disappearing. As evidence for this, please note that over one dozen people have asked about it on this BBS. See "Science News" magazine's year-end review issue (December 18 and 25, 1993, Volume 144, Numbers 25 and 26) for a list of articles about the ozone problem. And wear a hat if you are out in the sun a long time.
