The ozone layer causes the Greenhouse Effect. The Greenhouse Effect is when the ozone layer reflects the sun’s rays and absorbs the sun’s rays. So, while our ozone is getting weaker and weaker our earth’s sun rays is not knowing whether to reflect or absorb, so our temperature might be 70 one day and 85 the next day. This picture is showing Ansley in winter clothing and Emma in summer clothing.(I took these picture the same day) Ansley Emma What We Can Do If you do big project, DO NOT use spray paint, it hurts our ozone. DO NOT waste energy! If you leave a room, turn off the lights and in the end, when you add it all up, a lot of energy will be saved! Do you want to live like we are living now? Well if you do, protect it!
