Ozone Enviornmental Changes

Ozone depletion environmental issues - 90% of earth's ozone is concentrated in the Stratosphere. Stratospheric ozone protects the earth from potentially damaging doses of ultraviolet radiation. With the technological advances in the past century various man made substances have caused deletion of ozone from the Stratosphere. Depletion of ozone in the stratophere could lead to significant increases in UV radiation reaching the Earth's surface, which could in turn lead to adverse human and animal health effects, as well as ecosystem impacts. Climate changes and global warming may lead to global catastrophe endangering millions of people and animal lives. For more information about Ozone depletion, visit US EPA. An excellent article about Ozone hole, explains why and how ozone holes are formed, and why we should be worried about these holes.
