Exactly.. just reading some websites, they all claim the follwing:
1) solar flares do affect the ozone layer, reducing it for weeks after a solar flare would hit the earth (splits molecules in the upper athmosphere,
molecules that react with the ozone ones)
2) this affect humans by increasing the skin cancer occurance, damaging the eye too - so good UV sun glases would be a help
3) affects the plants and the agricultural output of various crops
4) affects the marine eco-systems by partly killing off the micro-organysmes that form the base of the marine food chain.
So opened ozone holes + solar activity = less food production and risk for animal tissues exposed in the sun..
sorry for my english, i will correct after work.
