COVFEFE shut-downs bring radical air quality improvements

This is for those who somehow think human activity is not substantial enough to impact the atmosphere:

Pretty clear humanity poops in it's own bed.

Something I have never read about, is every infernal combustion engine needs air to complete the combustion, and, how much in needed for each cycle of the engines.

Oxygen levels are decreasing in the atmosphere, and there is never any words written about how this is happening. Just think about all these hoovers on the roads everyday, sucking in all the air and releasing carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide pollutants without oxygen.

The plant kingdom tries to replace oxygen... that is, when we aren't burning it down and plowing it under.

One might notice that this result (and water quality, etc.) obtains with a net smaller decrease in population. So there are still as many people the only thing that's changed is their habits.

Mine haven't changed much, I drive to the grocery store once vs 3-4 trips by bicycle. When I go to the Post Office and it was time to lick the envelopes (through a painter's mack) they gave me Scotch tape.

The only place I could survive in Arizona is Flagstaff. I dunno how "you people" do it.
