Ozone Depletion Ozone Layer
1,344 wordsThe Earths ozone layer shields all life on the planet from the suns harmful radiation and is extremely important to all life on the planet, but we as a human race are now faced with a very important question. This question is, Is the Earths ozone layer really depleting, and if it is, is it really a threat? There is evidence that less protection from ultraviolet rays will, over time, lead to increased amounts skin cancer, cataract, and even crop damage. With cooperation with over 140 oth countrie...

The Ozone A Hole In Theory
2,357 wordsThe protective ozone layer around our world undergoes much thought and debate. The "Hole", however, only exists in the minds of environmental, self-serving scientists and politicians. It interests many to find all the faults in the publics consensus of the "ozone depletion. " Most scientists do not believe in this "depletion", they think it is a natural phenomenon. Ozone gasses come into view as consideration over what gasses are actually accused for this awful crime of destroying the ozone. But...

2,446 words... Watson, head of the ozone trends panel a supporter of the CFC banning: "Probably more people would die from food as a consequence of inadequate refrigeration than would die from depleting ozone. " An environmental scientist knowingly sending 20 - 40 million people to their deaths yearly! Banning CFCs would not only kill 20 - 40 million a year it will also lower the health of the remaining living people, by causing world-wide hunger, and food-borne diseases (Howard)! These are the type of peo...

All living organisms would suffer from too much mutation in the organism that all of its major organs would just stop working; and the organism would die. Until the 1970 s and 1980 s, most people, including scientists, took the ozone layer more or less for granted. They assumed it was one of the earths natural features and that it would always remain the same, This attitude chan...

Air Pollution And Ozone Part 1
1,750 wordsAir Pollution and Ozone Depletion The year is 2007. The ozone hole over Antarctica has expanded each year and has now become a severe global threat. Sometime in July several hundred large airplanes head out on a dangerous mission over the sunless Antarctic continent. Their goal: to spray 50, 000 tons of ethane into the stratosphere in an attempt to stop the ozone hole from forming as the austral spring approaches. Though it may sound like the plot for a new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, this idea...

Coral Reefs Fringing Reefs
4,088 wordsCoral reefs are arguably the worlds most beautiful habitats. Coral reefs have been called the rainforests of the oceans, because of the rich diversity of life they support. Scientists have not yet finished counting the thousands of different species of plants and animals that use or live in the coral reef. There are three types of coral reefs: fringing reefs, barrier reefs, and atolls. Fringing reefs are located close to shore, separated from land by only shallow water. Barrier reefs lie farther...

2,469 wordsThe Potential Effects of a Depleted Ozone Layer And God said, let there be light and there was light and then God saw the light, that it was good (Genesis 1: 3 - 4). Undoubtedly, light is good. Without light man could not survive. Light is the ultimate cosmic force in this universe allowing man to progress and flourish. In the form of heat, light from the sun warms the Earth. Light, also, is the single most important factor influencing the growth and development of plants. Photosynthesis, a proc...

Environmental Protection Agency Ozone Depletion
1,137 wordsThe ozone layer diminishes more each year. As the area of polar ozone depletion (commonly called the ozone hole) gets larger, additional ultraviolet rays are allowed to pass through. These rays cause cancer, cataracts, and lowered immunity to diseases. 1 What causes the depletion of the ozone layer? In 1970, Crutzen first showed that nitrogen oxides produced by decaying nitrous oxide from soil-borne microbes react catalytically with ozone hastening its depletion. His findings started research on...

946 wordsHalon an extinguishing agent was developed after World War II for the protection of aircraft engines. Several types were developed, and several were banned and discontinued such as halon 104. Other types were halon 1202, halon 1211, halon 1301, and halon 2402, which was never widely used in the United States due to its high toxicological concerns. Halon type 1101 was widely utilized for aircraft engines. The two most common types being; halon 1301 bromotrifluoromethane, C BrF 3, which is most co...

Ozone Layer Ultraviolet Rays
1,260 wordsAtmospheric ozone layer depletion is a serious problem currently facing the world. The ozone layer protects humans, animals, and plants from harmful ultraviolet rays. Money and time are being spent on ozone repair, but the problem still exists. The ozone layer is a region of the stratosphere containing ozone, or O 3 gas. The ozone layer is essential to both plant and animal life on earth because it protects the surface from dangerous ultraviolet light. However, industrial and domestic chemicals ...

Uv Radiation Ozone Depletion
993 wordsOur Radiant Planet- Depletion of the Ozone Layer Ozone is a relatively unstable form of molecular oxygen containing three oxygen atoms produced when upper-atmosphere oxygen molecules are split by ultra violet light. Stratospheric ozone is found in a broad band, extending generally from 15 to 35 km above the earth. Although the ozone layer is surprisingly thin, it acts as a protective shield to the earth, as it filters out most of the harmful solar ultraviolet radiation (in particular UV-B) that ...

On International Ozone Day, the report came in that the ozone levels have decreased above Montreal and other residents of southern Canada. The ozone levels have decreased to a normal level. Normal meaning the levels have dropped from the levels reported in 1980. The ozone layer is an important and fragile part of earth. If we did not have an o...

1,910 wordsSome scientists have proclaimed that the human race is slowly depleting the layer of ozone which protects us from ultra violet light. In reality, humans have very little control of the world in which we live. Scientific evidence has shown that there is very little depletion in the ozone layer and the contributions the human race makes towards this depletion is and always will be insignificant compared to nature. The theories of the depletion and what it would cause are flawed and contradictory. ...
