Our Radiant Planet - Depletion of the Ozone Layer
Similar processes can occur in the marine ecosystem, decreasing populations of phytoplankton in the worlds oceans. Disruption of the marine food webs will have the same effect as changes in the terrestrial webs mentioned above.
Ecosystems may be further disturbed by effects of UV radiation on animals, especially in vulnerable, early stages of life such as larvae or eggs.
Scientific research has only begun to scratch the surface on the impacts of UV-B radiation, but what is known is cause for concern. Despite the ever increasing list of negative UVB effects, ozone depleting chemicals are continually released into our atmosphere. Despite the availability of safer alternatives, technologies which are only slightly safer than the ones which they replace continue to be promoted. Despite the wisdom of the global science we still drag our feet. How far will the burning go? It is already deep into our seas and forests, and deep into our skin. We need to act now, and protect our planet. Our radiant earth.
