Earth Oxygen levels are dropping. Plankton to save Humanity.
By, Uwe Paschen.
The Problem with partial news in Science is that We do often see article claming this find or that result and every one that is not working with in science and research, jumps up or down screaming murder or glory. One day endorsing some thing and the next dismissing it all again with out checking nor knowing the facts or the detail and their implication nor their context.
CJ are great for that, they either, endorse some thing or dismiss it all together regardless of its merit or credential. Just based on their mood or inclinations. The truth and the facts stay on the roadside forgotten and ignored. Why so many Scientist are rather disillusioned with society and its arrogance to be all informed and knowledgeable when in fact most are rather misinformed and ignorant.
Climate change is a great topic totally mishandled by the media at large and the CJ in specific. Not understanding the diverse cycles and data, yet claming to be all knowledgeable and objective, when in fact the key to science is the continuous questioning of the knowledge and trying to prove it be on any doubt to the scientific community in order for it to be able to stand. Yet, revising the finds and observation as well as the proof. And this with every new find and additional knowledge that is added each day.
Why a good scientist will always questioned its own work and that of others even once proven to be true and reproducible in models and reality. Since it may work in all the areas tried and yet would it always be so? Even under unique conditions. We spend 70 years questioning Einstein his famous equation of relativity and tried to see if it would always be true or just in some or most cases, we put that equation upside down at times believing we may have fund a flaw and the press went nuts “he was wrong!” No, that is not what any one said, what was said is that “we may have fund a Flaw.” Then we proved that the equation does work in the calculation of space anomalies and the Press shouted “he was right be on any doubt.” No, again that is not what has been said, “we proved it to be true in some more applications.” Is what was said.
Same does go for articles or excerpts of news related to climate change. the other day I read an article about plankton, which was mixing thing up and misinforming. As I read the article at first I though it was about an older research to use plankton to rebalance the Ocean PH and it stated that this would be done in large scale to save the Ocean and reduce green house gases. So I said this cannot work, since the plankton falls to the bottom and becomes sediment, there for not releasing any calcium Carbonate.
Upon further digging up on information, it was about a project to help us produce more Oxygen since we are being depleting the Oxygen available by burning fossil fuels, creating water vapours, that will be causing more green house gases then CO2 could. The Current Oxygen levels are around 20.9%, this is well explained in Atmospheric Oxygen, Giant Paleozoic Insects and the Evolution of Aerial Locomotor Performance by R. Dudley, JExB, show a high of about 35% just before the beginning of the Permian, with a rapid decline to a low of about 13-14% near the beginning of the Triassic, then a small spike at about 17% in mid Triassic, another drop to about 14-15% early in the Jurassic, a sudden climb to about 21% by mid-Jurassic, then a gentle climb to about 26% early in the Tertiary, and a rather constant, steady decline to the present “20.9%.”Even now, we are not necessarily assured of a more-than-20-per cent oxygen level in the air at all times.
We have been losing oxygen levels due to the burning of Fossil fuels, especially Goal and Oil. This is a serious issue since we used to have 21.4% oxygen only a century ago. Should the oxygen level fall down below 19% then we would suffocate, and this could very well happen since Oxygen levels are still decreasing today, and still due to fusil fuel burning.
Should you wonder what all this has to do with plankton, I am getting there. http://www.trufax.org/general/oxygen.html.
Source of Half Earth’s Oxygen Gets Little Credit, being Plankton and more specifically Phytoplankton that are the base of what scientists refer to as oceanic biological productivity, meaning what allows life to exist such as us mammals and fish and so on. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/06/0607_040607_phytoplankton.html
Now the Oxygen depletion is a very serious issue. Why there are two projects under way trying to save us from suffocating so to speak. One is using Phytoplankton to absorb Carbon, lock it up and releasee the Oxygen. The Plankton would be increased or stimulated by putting large amounts or Iron Sulphate into the Ocean. This would actually not have any negative side effect on the oceans since we used to have a lot more plankton in the oceans two centuries ago then we do today. Again, this in large part due to pollution and Pollution induced climate changes. Why the plan to Farm produce massive amounts of Plankton, release them, in order to increase the Oxygen levels back to what they where one century ago. Alternatively, at least stopping the Oxygen levels from dropping any further as they all ready are.
The second project under way is Turning Carbon Dioxide into Fuel, this is done through solar power, since the more CO2 we produce, the more of the free oxygen in the atmosphere we deplete. Even though the CO2 may not be a driving factor for global warming it is the may factor for another and possibly much worse problem: death by insufficient oxygen, plainly put suffocation.
The plankton will help save us and it is not some scientist gone mad, yes the problems are that serious and no, most are not aware because they do not want to be nor are willing to listen or learn. Just worrying about the next vacation to the Bahamas is blist and meanwhile complaining about mad scientist trying to ruin the day by attempting to save Humanity from itself. Maybe we should just pull the plug and let most go under wile trying to save only a few.
