As you know, most of our trash is sent to a modern land field. From there, the garbage is burnt and the pollutants from this are sent into the air that we breathe. This destroys our ozone layer and brings in too much UV rays onto the earth. There are many things that harm the ozone layer such as; cow’s flatulent and belches, factory smoke and the exhaust from all vehicles. These things, when released into the air start to break down the ozone layer and causes global warming. If we can reduce how much of this toxic air, that is being released into our atmosphere, we can slow down the decomposition of the ozone layer. This is why recycling may help stop global warming.
Many people may not know it, but factory smoke, and anything that the earth uses for gas damages our ozone layer. These things are releasing too much carbon dioxide. More carbon dioxide than the vegetation on earth can handle. Trees, grass, and flowers require carbon dioxide to live. They use the carbon dioxide to produce the oxygen that we breathe, but when too much carbon dioxide is put into the air, it causes the vegetation to die, starting with the grass.

Car exhaust is known as a greenhouse gas that stays in the atmosphere for forty years. Greenhouse gas is the worst gas that is released into our atmosphere, because it absorbs and emits radiation. This causes the greenhouse effect. The main types of greenhouse gasses that are present within our atmosphere are; water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. These are the gases that affect the temperature of the earth. According to Siversten’s book Generation Green, “ The Earth’s surface would be about thirty-three degrees cooler than its current temperature.” ()
