Are there any natural occurring gasses that damage the ozone layer?

    Yes, ozone is depleted naturally by a series of catalytic cycles that include oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, chlorine and bromine.  When the levels of these elements are in control, the ozone layer stays at a healthy thickness, keeping in enough heat and releasing enough heat.  When there is an abundance of compounds containing these elements, the ozone depletes at an unnatural rate.  Methane and carbon dioxide are both natural occurring gases that deplete ozone.  Sulfur dioxide, released during volcanic explosions, also depletes ozone.
