Geo-engineering: Massive potential, or massively implausible?

Hurricanes cause massive amounts of deforestation, trees soak-up Carbon Dioxide and in the process give back free Oxygen that we need to breathe. Atmospheric Oxygen Levels Fall As Carbon Dioxide Rises According to a study conducted by scientists from the Scripps Institute there is less oxygen in the atmosphere today than there used to be. The ongoing study, which accumulated and interpreted data from NOAA monitoring stations all over the world, has been running from 1989 to the present. It monitored both the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the decline in oxygen. The conclusion of that 20 year study is that, as carbon dioxide (produced primarily by burning fossil fuels) accumulates in the atmosphere, available oxygen is decreasing. Carbon dioxide seems to be almost the total focus of attention in the climate change model as it exists today. After reviewing the ...
