We all know that burning diesel and gasoline really harms the Earth but not just that, when we turn on the air conditioner, we use Freon gas and when this Freon gas goes up to the Stratosphere where the Ozone layer is. And that Freon gas destroys the Ozone layer, so by that, we get more harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun that can cause our skin old or even cause skin cancer.
