Good up high (protects the earth from UV), but bad down low. Ozone in our level of atmosphere (troposphere) is causing BIG harms. A by-product of combustion, and a widely used industrial gas, ozone is a very caustic form of oxygen (O3). The public really first learned how bad at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic games, where the smog was so bad that athletes were crippled by it. If you live in any city and have a sunny day with not much wind, you will probably get a harmful dose - it is an invisible gas but is accompanied by smog - and it will choke your lungs and water your eyes.
For years, author Gail Zawacki has been blogging passionately about the ways ozone causes extensive damage to trees. Her very personal accounts and photographs show the dramatic damage to all plants. Her blog now is one of the more respected resources for tropospheric ozone interactions. With this book she draws heavily on policy and scientific studies of ozone. Humans, and all life forms face a serious problem with ozone.
If you interact with trees - with any life form - animal or vegetable - you will learn how dangerous ozone is - even indirectly. Most agricultural crop production is significantly reduced by ozone exposure. Check it out. You will never be able to look at a tree in the same way.
A Nobel prize is long-past due for this environemntal heroine.
Now the forests are being destroyed worldwide, and the whole Earth being made into an arid, dusty Iraq.
Gail documents scientifically just how fast and thorough a Global Tataouine-ing is happening. Better hope those moisture vaporators are for real, and not something George Lucas glued together.
