Dear Friends,

This month, we shall talk about Stratospheric Ozone Depletion. This is a success story for mankind that shows that we do have at our command, ways and means to tackle at a global scale, the environmental challenges we face. Ultra-violate rays from the sun has harmful effects on plants, animals and humans (causing skin cancer, particularly in white skinned persons having low melanin levels). The ozone layer in the stratosphere (10 to 50 kms above) helps to absorb most of the harmful UV-B rays and protects us.
