The risk assessment seeks to summarize the state of scientific knowledge so that a considered judgement can be made about the need for additional controls. Scientific evidence is therefore reviewed and evaluated for two purposes: (1) to assess the likelihood that different human activities could alter the stratosphere in ways that altered ultraviolet radiation reaching earth's surface or that changed climate; and (2) to assess the likelihood that changes in ultraviolet radiation or climate due to modifications in column ozone or stratospheric water vapor would have detrimental effects on human health or welfare.
