Super/Turbo charger topic on EO

wonder if anyone proof read the topic before it was put up.

"Normal air is about 21% oxygen, about 80% nitrogen and the rest is small amounts of other gases like carbon dioxide, methane, argon etc. etc"

Were'nt we taught its about 19% oxygen, 80% nitrogen and then comes the rest making it 100%....and not 101%+

Ray,
The ratio remains much the same - there's less of all of them up there.

must be attributable to the changing world climatic conditions
the warmer oceans, hotter clouds, more cows and less trees ??

It's global warming.

Hot air is less dense, therefore when you bring it down to to 21'C you get more than your 100% worth.

I would have thought it was obvious.

The global finacial meltdown is also adding to the problem ie more heat, so those percentages will need to be reviewed later this year.

Actually, GT (G&T?), the melting will absorb heat, and the industrial production cut backs will mean that less CO2 will be poured into the atmosphere for a while. 8D
It looks like a double whammy in favour of the environment :)
