This article is more for scientists and field researchers. A practical step forward in determining global oxygen depletion rates. A conclusion to decades of research.
Have you ever wondered how much breathable air is on Earth? And if we will ever run out? Our atmosphere is paper-thin relative to a basketball, and we use its oxygen to power internal combustion engines, like planes, trains and automobiles, and there is a 60% chance that the electricity you are using to read this post came from fossil fuels combined with oxygen.
