Oxygen decline in Earth's atmosphere

Atmospheric Oxygen Decline threatens Humanity’s Existence



Study: There has been a clear decline in the volume of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere over the past 20 years. A recently proposed model predicts a non-linear decay, which would result in an increasingly rapid fall-off in atmospheric oxygen concentration, with potentially devastating consequences for human health. 

We predict that humans may continue to survive in an unprotected atmosphere for ~3600 years.
