GLOBAL
WARMING
OZONE DEPLETION
Caused by high
levels of CO2
released by burning
Both harm the
fossil fuels (coal;
environment
oil; gas)
Increased levels of
CO2 trap more
heat in the Earth’s
atmosphere
Both caused by
chemicals
released by human
activities
Results in melting polar
ice caps & higher water
levels; disrupts food chains;
severe storms &
drought
Caused by the
release of CFC’s
from aerosol cans
and freon found in
refrigerators & AC
units
CFC’s cause “holes” in the
Ozone layer which allows
greater amounts of UV
Radiation to enter
Results in increased
cases of skin
cancer
