What is it?
Amalgam of principles borrowed from a wide variety of basic and applied sciences
Ozone and Temperature
The hole in the ozone layer is created by the accumulation of chlorine containing compounds in the upper atmosphere, largely in the form of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs for short).
Greenhouse gases =

It's all the planktons fault..............

Ozone layer abosrbs 97-99% of medium-frequency UV light (200-315 nmm)

(Elwood et al, 1988)
Increase in UV-B (280-320 nm)
enough to activate oncogene
(Ollinger et al, 1997)

What does a surplus of CO2 mean for oceans
and the atmosphere?
Global warming likely to reduce phytoplankton size,
thereby reducing ocean's capacity to remove carbon
dioxide from air (Anxelu et al, 2010)
