Unformatted text preview: effects of the selected issue. One of the contributions of ozone depletion is aerosol propellants like hairspray or deodorant. Once the gas of an aerosol can is emitted into the air, it stays until it is able to break away layers of the ozone. Like most gases it is not able to keep from expanding until it reaches the layer of the atmosphere that keeps us from getting burned by the sun. The ozone also becomes depleted when combined with other air pollutants like gas emissions and in return has cause global warming. Global warming is the event that the atmosphere can no longer help to keep the sun from destroying plants, skin, and keep the Earth temperatures from rising. This is from ozone depletion. One key solution is to stop using aerosol cans, keep from doing unnecessary travel, and to try to somehow lower industry air pollution. SCI 275...
