Less oxygen = fewer insects, etc. – 07/18/2006

    “…it came as a surprise when the Foundation was informed that this
    decrease of oxygen was killing off lower life forms which could not
    adapt to the decreased oxygen. In checking out what little
    information that is available, it was found that the highest oxygen
    concentration ever recorded was thirty-one per cent and the lowest
    ever recorded was sixteen percent. The level is presently at twenty
    percent. This means that we are eleven points below the best and
    only four points away from the worst. There is a new developing
    theory that this may actually be the cause of the demise of the
    dinosaurs as the lower levels were found at that time. This is
    leading to the theory that the dinosaurs may have died off from a
    lack of oxygen rather than a sudden ice age or giant meteor impact.

    After coming across this information we began to realize
    that the lower life forms referred to are such as the insects. We
    began to notice that the insect population appeared to be
    considerably lower. For example, a few years ago there would be
    tens of thousands of fire flies in our yard. This year we only saw
    four, there are almost no grass hoppers, the crickets were down at
    least by ninety per cent, the auto windshield does not have to be
    cleaned as there are on more bug splats on it, there are no more
    frogs in my pond, I haven’t seen a horned toad in twenty-five years
    even though we live in the country away from metropolitan
    pollution. So why are the insects disappearing? Insects, unlike
    mammals, do not have lungs as such which can simply be expanded in
    order to take in a deeper breath to obtain more oxygen….”
