The Estonian Fox

For the last 5 years, I've shown a graph of oxygen & CO2 levels vs time, during a dino talk that I give to local 7th graders. The present CO2 levels are the LOWEST they have been for the last 550 million years. Even Uncle Joey B isn't that old.

I'm more worried about the O2 level - it has been monotonically decreasing from 26% (40MYA) to the present atmospheric level of 21%. I've yet to find a good reason for that. If that keeps up, I won't have enough breathable O2 in another 80 MY or so.

And as far as Crichton is concerned - how can you trust someone who lets AI run amok (Westworld); an alien virus run amok (Andromeda Strain); and cloned dinos throwing their DNA around willy-nilly and running amok?
