江苏省南菁高级中学 杨琰

Lead-in
Extinct animals
 
Dinosaurs

Activity 1
What caused the extinction of dinosaurs? Volcanic eruptions? Extreme climate? Asteroid impacts?

Activity 2
Read the passage quickly and find out cause of the Late Devonian extinction according to the article.
A broken ozone layer

Activity 3: process of the research
 

Activity 4: findings of the research
Read Paragraphs 3-4 and find the relevant information.
Finding 1:
These spores were vulnerable to ultra-violet (UV) radiation.
The evidence: These spores were found misshapen, suggesting that their DNA had been damaged by UV radiation.

Finding 2:
Many of the spores had their walls darkened.

What does this result indicate?
1. The UV levels were unusually high.
2. All of the ozone protection was gone.

Activity 5
Think further.
1. What does the writer mean by “sound familiar“?
2. What would the earth be like if the ozone layer was destroyed?
3. How should we protect the ozone layer?


1. What does the writer mean by “sound familiar“?
The current situation is similar to the Late Devonian extinction, as if the history is repeating itself.
According to the study, a similar collapse of the ozone layer could occur again.

2.What would the earth be like if the ozone layer was destroyed?
All of the ozone protection would be gone. The melting ice sheets would quickly release a large amount of heat into the air, pushing more naturally generated ozone-destroying chemicals into the atmosphere. This would move us from the current state of climate change to a climate emergency.

3. How should we protect the ozone layer?
Reduce the emission of carbon dioxide;
Reduce the usage of FREON(氟利昂)and find an environmentally-friendly substitute.
