Global Warming
To understand the relationship between the hole in the ozone layer and global warming we must first understand what they are. The hole in the ozone layer is mainly over Antarctica but can sometimes be seen over the North Pole. The ozone depletion is caused by CFCs that were released by aerosol cans and refrigerates before they were banned in 1996. Yet these chemicals don’t disappear right away they can stay in our atmosphere for over fifty years causing the molecules of the ozone layer to breakdown creating a hole. Global warming is caused by excessive amounts of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere which mainly comes from the burning of fossil fuels. So what do these two phenomena’s have in common? Does one cause the other, and do the two produce the same effect? In the last 100 years scientists have been looking into our planets global warming issues, but there are others that care to dismiss it all together. Since the turn of the industrial age there have been studies that show that the earth’s temperature has increased. Carbon dioxide is considered the trace gas of greatest importance because of the substantial increase in its atmospheric concentration as well as its probable continued rise due to global consumption of fossil fuels. This is from factories, cars and other things that humans have made or use on...
