The air is only like 20% oxygen...and does it include oxygen in compounds? pretty poo video.

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

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.

Also, If the oxygen doubled any fire would go out of control because we wouldn't be able to extinguish it with water.

In other words: We would all be dead.

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

tedgp - No, a youtube vid showing a slideshow of captioned images that is essentially a dumbed down version of yahoo answers.

This whole thing is a gigantic exaggeration. How would insects grow larger in 5 seconds? They wouldn't.

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.

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

So a youtube vid based on what is essentially a dumbed down version of yahoo answers?
