I'd like to know about air pollution and its effects as well as the chance of damaging the ozone layer.
Hi, there are certainly components to the pollution we spew into the atmosphere that become ozone hazards by affecting the thickness and concentration of the ozone layer in the stratosphere, several kilometres above the earth's surface.
The ones we hear about mainly have molecules consisting of a carbon atom and some halide, such as fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons.
have a look at this: http://www.epa.gov/ozone/ from the US government.
Wikipedia is always a good source of background information on scientific topics. try this page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_depletion
