Ozone depletion has a profound effect on humans everywhere. It causes several disorders such
-Immune system not functioning properly
-Pterygium (an eye disorder)
It also affects daily life such as air quality. The decrease of ozone causes an increase
of UV radiation in the atmosphere causing the rise of photochemical smog, which is also bad for humans, animals, and the general
Speaking of ecosytems...
Ozone depletion not only affects us, the humans, but also them, the plants. Scientific studies
have shown that the increase of radiation due to lack of ozone is harmful to food crops. It causes them to shrivel up
and become useless to us as food. Also, increased radiation causes imperfections in several cycles of nature, such as
the water cycle and the oxygen cycle. Unless these cycles can continue, guess what, we're gonna die.
LLAMAS!!!!! and other fuzzy and non-fuzzy creatures:
Several of the affects on humans such as eye cataracts also affect animals. Several skin diseases have
emerged on animals in areas like Australia that have a profound hole in the ozone layer. Marine life is also affects.
The radiation kills of plankton messing up the entire aquatic food chain. It also damages fish at an early stage of
their life causing either mutation or death for the fish.
Without the ozone layer, we have an uncertain future. The one thing that will positivly occur
is that no organism will be able to withstand the radiation emitted from the sun. The only uncertantity is whether all
life will cease because of the radiation of all the other world problems caused by ozone depletion.
