It is true.


Water vapor from volcanos and evaporation is broken down by high energy electro magnetic radiation into Oxygen and Hydrogen gases. This is why the atmosphere has always had significant amounts of Oxygen in it.

Also Ozone #O_3# an important protective chemical in the atmosphere is broken down into # O_2# . This chemical reaction is greatly increased by the presence of Hyroflourine molecules in the atmosphere due to pollution.
