How would increased sulfur in the atmosphere affect the ozone layer?

    Increased sulfur in the atmosphere would help to keep global temperatures down.  It has actually been suggested to purposely shoot sulfur into the atmosphere in order to offset the effects of global warming.  Sulfur reflects solar rays back into space rather than trapping them in the ozone.

    If sulfate aerosols increase in number, more chemical reactions occur which alter chlorine and nitrogen chemical species in the stratosphere. Chlorine monoxide is created which destroys ozone.
