    If the level oxygen doubled, the world would instantly become a burning pyre.

    Oxygen is 20% of the air. It`d be an uncomfortable 5 seconds but the entire planet would survive just fine. Now if we lost "atmosphere" for 5 seconds, that`s another story.

    This whole thing is a gigantic exaggeration. How would insects grow larger in 5 seconds? They wouldn`t.

    It seems like they did themselves a disservice by including the "for 5 seconds" thing. That removes credibility from some of their facts.

    Also, If the oxygen doubled any fire would go out of control because we wouldn`t be able to extinguish it with water.

    Insects wouldn`t grow fantastically large, they would evolve into larger versions, I process that would take eons. Also, be consistent, don`t count oxygen bounded to other elements in the first example and ignore it in the second one. It would take a lot more than five seconds to sunburn, even without an ozone layer. Earth had no atmospheric oxygen for billions of years.

    I refuse to accept quasi-scientific bullpoo from a guy who doesn`t know that spiders are not giant man-eating insects.
