(Tell me what is the last question you’ve Googled and what did you learn?)
I am NOT a techie and I always seem behind on new technology. One of the features we have had for a while is Google Search on our smart phones. It has taken me a couple of years to start using it consistently. I would often joke with my husband, “If only we had a handheld device that I could look up that information.” He would respond, “We do!”
The last half of this year I have been using Google Search on my phone much more than before. Previously I would have a question, but by the time I got to my computer I would have forgotten what it was. Now that I can check right away, I am learning so much and loving it.
The question I had tonight was, ‘How much oxygen does a tree make?’
Google answered, “On average one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year. Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four….”
Then farther down the page it says, “Explain to students that rainforest are responsible for roughly one-third (28%) of the Earth’s oxygen but most (70%) of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by marine plants. The remaining 2 percent of the Earth’s oxygen comes from other sources”
I have had this question come to my mind many times over the past decade. I finally have an answer. Now, I know it is really important to keep the planet’s marine plants healthy.
