    @barbara: Yes, global warming is the driver here, though a better term is climate change, because the average temperatures over the whole globe don't tell you specifically regional effects. However the depletion of ozone, also known as the "ozone hole" is not really related effect. Ozone in the upper atmosphere absorbs much of the ultraviolet light coming from the sun, which is good for us because ultraviolet light is damaging to skin and leads to higher cancer rates. The ozone layer does not "spread melting arctic ice".
