Ozone gas, present in the stratosphere, absorb the uv rays of the sun which are harmful to living beings. But it has been found that ozone layer is depleting. The depletion of ozone layer will cause lesser absorption of uv rays resulting in an increase in the number of skin and eye related diseases and the decrease in the production of plants and crops. the major cause of ozone layer depletion is the release of cfc's , also called freons. They destroy the ozone layer but have little effect on global warming.
