The oceans of the world are man’s greatest oxygen reservoir. As the oceans absorb CO2 out of the atmosphere, free oxygen is displaced by CO2. CO2 in the ocean is carbolic acid, and is easily detected with instruments like pH meters. It’s a known fact that the acid content of our oceans is rapidly increasing, killing off a lot of sea life. This CO2 absorption mechanism also releases oxygen from the oceans for man to breathe.
Since the oceans are continuously giving off oxygen, scientists are unaware that there is an oxygen depletion catastrophe around the corner that is going to kill people in the billions. A rapid rise in ocean acidification results in a rapid rise in free oxygen being delivered to man’s breathable atmosphere.
Once oxygen content is nearly depleted, the breathable oxygen percentage will rapidly drop from 19% to about 8-12% globally. This will lead to a rapid dying off of the world’s population through lung disease, cancer, heart disease & general loss of survivability (except those who can buy oxygen).
This is the real ELE (extinction level event) that is in progress right now. The only thing that would help alleviate this problem would be the rapid meltdown of Antarctica. Massive amounts of oxygen have been locked up in polar ice for thousands of years – this is our only other major supply of oxygen.
In reply to the backlash claiming, “We can’t stop using fossil fuels.” we dedicated our R&D decades ago in developing solutions that are able to replace fossil fuels with solar power. Solar energy is thousands of times greater than all fossil fuel supplies.
We can all survive temperature rises through use of the right technologies. No one can survive without oxygen.
Editor: Although a huge chunk of these cancer deaths are due to coal burning, construction pollution, etc. the link to China’s increasing reliance on piston engine-powered vehicles is undeniably the cause of preventable deaths.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt brought in a graduated income tax because the rich were holding on to money resources that could have grown the depressed economy. His theory was to put people to work, and fairly distribute the nation’s wealth.
In spite of the perverted twist that Republican elites put on this historical graduated tax, a wise nation will build on this economic theory today. Assuming that the federal government could transform itself from greed-centricity (a BIG leap in illogic), using taxes on the rich to establish millions of small business garage-shop industries is the only way to prevent total economic collapse.
It’s not the national debt that’s crippling the country. Taxes on the upper 10% rich could pay down the debt in a short time. We need to empower people at the bottom with tools they need to participate in democratic industry. And it’s government that needs to “provide for the general welfare” by diverting revenue from bankers & multi-billion $ industrialists to getting “WE the PEOPLE” back on our feet.
Priority one is to train the poor & unemployed in technical skills – machining, welding, craftsmanship. This can’t be accomplished in contemporary colleges & universities, but rather in trade schools, online instruction & community workshops. The goal is to create new low-cost, high-value industries, and stem the tide of generations drowning in debt.
Once trained, and armed with tax-free small business funding, this nation could become a global force in a new democratic economy. – The final step will be to abolish ALL taxation!
