We BREATHE IN What the TREES Breathe Out
We breathe in what the trees breathe out. Because trees make our oxygen, and we breathe in oxygen, we breathe oxygen made by trees. However, there’s more to this story, as I’ll explain in this video. Because the trees lose their leaves in autumn, the trees actually make more oxygen than they would if they kept their leaves all year round. This contributes to the health of the planet.
TIME CODES for the Video: We Breathe In What the Trees Breathe Out
To find a particular topic you’re looking for in the video, go to the place in the video at the following time code:
- 0:00:00 Trees make our oxygen.
- 0:01:09 Because it is autumn, the trees are dropping their leaves, wonderful for the oxygen on the planet.
- 0:02:13 Rising levels of carbon dioxide cause climate change.
- 0:02:42 The problem is how do you make more oxygen?
- 0:03:00 Photosynthesis only happens in the light.
- 0:03:25 During the winter, your nights are longer than your days.
- 0:04:16 I’m really interested in oxygen, because I need oxygen to live like everyone else.
- 0:04:59 Unfortunately, at night, trees are creating carbon dioxide.
- 0:05:36 I’m interested in: What is making more oxygen on earth?
- 0:06:06 Trees are making no carbon dioxide after they drop their leaves.
- 0:06:44 We deplete the oxygen through breathing and industrial processes.
- 0:08:17 When nights are longest, if the trees didn’t drop their leaves, they would be making the most carbon dioxide.
- 0:08:45 Our deciduous trees and land plants are making a net gain of oxygen.
- 0:09:12 We breathe oxygen made by trees
