While the ozone hole is still enormous—measuring about 19.6 million square kilometers (7.6 million square miles, or 2.5 times the size of the U.S.) at its annual peak extent this Sept. 11—that's much smaller compared to the average area of ozone hole maximums since 1991 of roughly 26 million square kilometers (10 million square miles).

"In the past, we've always seen ozone at some stratospheric altitudes go to zero by the end of September," said Bryan Johnson, NOAA atmospheric chemist. "This year our balloon measurements showed the ozone loss rate stalled by the middle of September and ozone levels never reached zero."

The ozone shield in Earth's stratosphere helps absorb the sun's dangerous ultraviolet radiation, which causes problems such as skin cancer.

Since the alarming discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole in the 1980s, international efforts such as thelandmark 1987 Montreal Protocol have phased out the industrial production of ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons used in air-conditioning, refrigeration and aerosol-spray propellants.

      Tú, la misma siempre tú
      Amistad, ternura qué sé yo
      Tú, mi sombra has sido tú
      La historia de un amor
      Que no fue nada
      Tú, mi eternamente tú
      Un hotel, tu cuerpo y un adiós
      Tú, mi oculta amiga tú
      Un golpe de pasión
      Amor de madrugada
      No existe un lazo entre tú y yo
      Nada de amores
      Nada de nada
      Tú, la misma de ayer
      La incondicional
      La que no espera nada
      Tú, la misma de ayer
      La que no supe amar
      No sé por qué
      Tú, intensamente tú
      Soledad, cariño yo qué sé
      Tú, mis horas bajas tú
      Un cuerpo de mujer
      Un par de rosas blancas
      No existe un lazo entre tú y yo
      No hubo promesas
      Ni juramentos
      Nada de nada.
      Tú la misma de ayer
      La incondicional
      La que no espera nada
      Tú la misma de ayer
      La que no supe amar
      No sé por qué
      Amiga, tú la misma de ayer
      La incondicional
      La que no espera nada

      Precisamente ahora que tu ya te has ido
      Me han dicho que has estado engañándome
      ¿Por qué de pronto tienes tantos enemigos?
      ¿Por qué tengo que andar disculpándote?
      Si ellos están mintiendo, por favor defiéndete
      Yo sé que no lo harás, pues dicen la verdad
      Es una pena siempre seguirás doliéndome
      Y culpable o no
      ¿Qué le puedo hacer ya?
      Miénteme como siempre,
      Por favor miénteme
      Necesito creerte
      Miénteme con un beso
      Que parezca de amor
      Necesito quererte
      Culpable o no
      No tengo ya derecho a reprocharte nada
      Pues nada queda ya de ti, de ayer
      Qué pena, nuestra historia pudo ser fantástica
      Y ahora dime mi amor
      ¿Quién te va a defender?
