BUSINESS CONSEQUENCES OF OZONE LAYER DEPLETION Effect on human health that would affect business WORKFORCE INCAPABLE TO SERVE

BUSINESS WELL All businesses need workforce to continue in the business. Workforce is very important because implementation action will be pursuing by them. If they affected by a disease that caused by ozone layer depletion it will tremendously affect the business. Business will lack of skilled workforce. Ozone layer depletion can cause human disease like cancer. Scientist has estimated that Every time 1% of the ozone layer is depleted, 2% more UV-B is able to reach the surface of the planet. UV-B increase is one of the most harmful consequences of ozone depletion because it can cause skin cancer. Thus, business will be affected due to inefficient in management. Due to lack of workforce in the business, Business cant operate well in the industry and obtain slow growth and unprofitable market. Industries become slow growth. All of it affected relatively. Moreover, ozone layer depletion leads to damage to the eyes that can develop a snow blindness. Since the workforce is the one that implement the strategy of management. If they blind, the business will follow blind profit. Increase death from heat and disease Disruption of food and water supplies Spread of tropical disease to temperature areas Increase respiratory disease Increase water pollution from coastal flooding

Effect on ecosystem that effect business operation REDUCE IN RESOURCES TO PRODUCE A PRODUCT OR DAMAGE RESOURCES An ecosystem is a complex set of relationship among the living resources, habitats, and residents of an area. It includes plants, trees, animals, fish, birds, microorganism, water, soil and also people. If one of the ecosystems is damage or disappears, it has impact on something else that related to it. When the ecosystem is healthy scientist says its sustainable. This mean

the elements are balance and are capable of reproducing themselves. There is usually biodiversity. All animals and plants and other organisms that are exposed to the Sun, though well shielded by the ozone layer, have developed ways to cope with and protect themselves from the small fraction of solar UVB radiation that normally reaches the Earth's surface. Even a small amount of UVB radiation can have a significant effect on ecosystems. In the tropics, for example, where a thinner ozone layer and a higher Sun result in systematically stronger UV dosage, certain trees have been found to be restricted in their growth by current levels of solar UV radiation. In ecosystem studies, as in medicine, science has not yet reached the point where any practically useful assessments of the consequences of increased dosages can be made. Research has thus far been mainly limited to more rudimentary studies in laboratories and greenhouses that test the sensitivity of different plant species to enhanced UV radiation. Only a few field investigations have been performed on an appreciable scale, and proper ecological studies are still in their infancy. In general, it appears that plant species can react in widely different ways to increased levels of UVB radiation, some may be clearly limited in their growth; other varieties may be insensitive or rapidly become so by adaptive mechanisms; and still others may even exhibit enhanced growth. Under added stress, as through drought, the differences in UV sensitivity may be completely lost. The majority of plant species that have been tested were agricultural plants; trees appear to run a higher risk of accumulating UV damage over their far longer lifetimes. In addition to direct effects on photosynthesis and growth, there may also occur more subtle changes, such as a delay in flowering, a shift in the distribution of leaves, a change in leaf structure, or a change in a plant's metabolism. As verified in field studies, such subtle changes may have far-reaching consequences by causing a plant to lose ground to neighboring plants with whom they compete. Thus, dramatic shifts in plant populations and in biodiversity may ensue. Similar processes can occur in the marine ecosystems that exist at shallow depths in photosynthetically active zones. UV radiation can penetrate tens of meters into clear ocean water. It has been found thatphytoplankton--the minuscule, plant-like organisms that float on or near the surface of the ocean and that serve as the base of the entire marine food chain--are sensitive to the levels of UVB radiation that penetrate the ocean's surface. Recent studies have focused particularly on the waters that bound the Antarctic continent, directly under the ozone

hole, and rates of phytoplankton production were indeed found to be depressed relative to other similar areas. These potentially significant disturbances at the basis of terrestrial and marine food webs may have a domino effect that could ultimately affect mankind. Moreover, loss of biodiversity due to enhanced UV radiation may render an ecosystem more vulnerable to the other stresses such as are expected to accompany greenhouse- induced climate change. Higher levels of UVB levels could also reduce the global plant cover that serves as a sink for CO2, thus enhancing climatic change. Unfortunately, at this time scientific research has produced only limited and widely varying data on possible impacts on single plants or species, and much remains to be done to quantify the possible effects on any marine, terrestrial, or agricultural ecosystem. Ecosystems may be further disturbed by deleterious effects of UV radiation on animals, especially in vulnerable, early stages of life such as larvae or the eggs of frogs in shallow water. Thus, the resources of business will be affected since the ozone layer depletion will give impact on them. Shortage of water lead to operation of beverages product, unhealthy of trees cannot produce a quality of furniture, and reducing number of chicken.
