NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory A new NASA-led study finds that when it comes to combating global warming caused by emissions of ozone-forming chemicals, location matters. Ozone is both a major air pollutant with known adverse health effects and a greenhouse gas that traps heat from escaping Earth's atmosphere. Scientists and policy analysts are interested in learning how curbing the emissions of these chemicals can improve human health and also help mitigate climate change....

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The earth´s ozone layer is critical for protecting life from damaging UV light from the sun. In the late 1970s scientists discovered for the first time that this precious barrier between life and death was depleting, and at a fairly consistent rate. After years of study, the man-made cause of the depletion–mainly seen in the polar regions–was determined to hail from chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were found...
