    Yes, ozone is a greenhouse gas. While it does trap heat in the atmosphere, it also breaks down to produce a substance called hydroxyl. This substance helps to reduce other harmful gases. However, to truly reduce effects of global warming, it is up to humans to lessen the pollution being emitted.

    Ozone, which while helpful for blocking UV rays in the upper atmosphere is harmful in the lower atmosphere to respiratory systems of animals and humans, is one of five primary greenhouse gases that absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range.  The thermal infrared range is also known as mid-wavelength and long-wavelength infrared.  The other four primary greenhouse gases are water vapor, methane, CO2, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
