    Well, 98% of our oxygen comes from algae (as in seaweed)… so no one’s going to asphyxiate if we burn the Amazon. Well, the environmentalists might.

    98%? Try about 50. But thanks for playing…

    And we all know that you should never dereference a Null Pointer!

    More like about 70 to 80 percent, actually!

    Sadly we’ll find some way to kill off the algae too.

    Lessee, from 98 to50 to 70-80%. I’m going for 62.5%.

    Timely today, as Colorado gets ready to vote on fracking measures next month

    Sorry to disappoint all who see an uncut tree as a wasted opportunity but forests serve integral ecological functions. But don’t let facts get in the way of your hyperbole.

    Hey! With fracking, we can KILL the Earth from the inside!
    And with all the radioactive waste and other pollutions going into the ocean, that pesky oxygen creating algae is a goner!
    .
    Soon, Mother Earth will be perfectly terraformed for our new alien overlords! Isn’t that exciting? Huh? Isn’t it?

    First, phytoplankton provide and estimated 50% of the world’s oxygen but it’s much of that goes into water to be used by fish and other sea-based life-forms.
    Other marine plants provide a fair amount with land-based plants providing the rest – since it mainly all comes from photosynthesis.

    Also, we cannot kill the Earth. Outside of blowing it up with a planet buster bomb from sci-fi movies, we’re not capable of that sort of global destruction.

    Remember, the Earth has gone through extinction periods in the past where 75-90% of ALL animal died – and yet we’re here to write and complain.

    No, we cannot kill the Earth. It will be here long after we are gone. Of course, the decisions we are making, will determine whether our grandchildren will have any air or water left to use. But hey, that’s their problem!
