Every form of energy usage contributes to the amount of carbon dioxide in the ozone layer, causing less solar heat to escape from our atmosphere. This has, in turn, lead to an increase in climate change in the form of global warming, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, heavier rainstorms, and more frequent droughts. Each form of impact has branching negative effects throughout local environments.
