[What new can be learnt about oxygen, given the amount of knowledge accumulated since the works of scientists of the eighteenth century, who discovered and separated it chemically? Swede Carl Scheele, Englishman Joseph Priestly, Frenchman Antoine Lavoisier conducted various experiments to study...
[During the twentieth century, the works of leading geochemists opened a new chapter in our understanding of the historic processes and variability of the oxygen in the past. The Earth was not an oxidised entity in its beginning.]
[Until recently (in geological terms), the atmospheric concentration of oxygen had been stable. Then mammals appeared, and among those humans who started influencing the environment by active interventions, which have led to the rise of the so-called Anthropocene—the epoch in the Earth’s...
[One of the first attempts of scientific forecasts of global development was the report “The Limits to Growth” (1972), in which early computer simulations were used, and the conclusions of the report (Meadows et al., The limits to growth. In A report for the club of Rome’s project on the...
[Possible solutions to the problem of increasing carbon emissions (and decreasing oxygen) are various scenarios with higher or lower use of oil and its products. In the short term (over the scale of decades), stopping the use of fossil fuels altogether is unlikely, and therefore various...
[The uncertainty in the future of atmospheric oxygen increases with the length of the horizon of the attempted forecast. The complexity of planetary feedback may influence nonlinearly the dynamics of interactions and gas exchange between the atmosphere, the world oceans and the Earth’s crust....
