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.
These are all my good ideas and bad. I recommend you start with my favorite ideas. Or try doing a search. My ideas are sprinkled everywhere like seeds and some grow up to be books.
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.
I calculate how much oxygen a tree breathes and how much excess oxygen a tree produces in three different ways. Spoiler alert: It’s not a lot.
Ten reasons why we might be measuring oxygen in the atmosphere wrong. And how global oxygen depletion may be a hidden driver of climate change.
Time for an update on my progress of losing weight while literally doing nothing. A sad update leads to renewed motivation. I also added a few new rules to try, like: Put down the spoon in between bites.
My first life experiment will be about a topic that seems commonplace: how to lose weight. Here I try a variation of a mindfulness diet. I call it the Do-Nothing Diet. Can I lose weight by literally doing nothing?
I demonstrate how to calculate the mass of oxygen in the atmosphere. And I talk about ten reasons why the accepted values may be wrong.
I call this concept “The rule of thirds.” We can use this rule to help us find alternate solutions or judge whether we are achieving success with the one solution we are using.
We talk about whether depression is in the mind or the body. And, another tool to help you feel better before you even know you need to feel better.
What if the driver of climate change is NOT carbon dioxide but oxygen depletion? See the math to compare CO2 emissions to oxygen burned.
An introduction to my adventure in depression.
A series about how to find/create more joy in life. Everyone can benefit from these life lessons and activities.
There are many ways oxygen is burned/consumed/oxidized. It is a very reactive element. We highlight the major natural causes, like: respiration, decomposition, forest fires, rust and more.
