What happens as the ozone layer becomes thinner

(1) Answers

The ozone layer absorbs 97-99% of the sun's high frequency ultraviolet light , light which is potentially damaging to life on earth. Every 1% decrease in the earths ozone shield is projected to increases the amount of UV light exposure to the lower atmosphere by 2%. this would cause more ozone to form in the lower atmosphere. what would all that ultraviolet light do to us? we wouldnt be able to show our skin to the sun anymore without getting cancer.
