However, global warming has started to affect the delicate balance of our ozone layer.

As temperatures rise due to global warming, certain chemicals, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), are released into the atmosphere.

These chemicals damage the ozone layer, causing it to thin and develop holes.

Thinning and holes in the ozone layer allow more UV rays to reach the Earth's surface.
