What is it?
Amalgam of principles borrowed from a wide variety of basic and applied sciences
Climate Control
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 =
Water: Contamination and Vectors
It's all the planktons fault..............
Medical Ecology
Rene Dubos

Ozone layer abosrbs 97-99% of medium-frequency UV light (200-315 nmm)
Health and The Ozone Layer
(Elwood et al, 1988)
Increase in UV-B (280-320 nm)
enough to activate oncogene

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)
