This is what will happen if Earth is left without oxygen for just 5 seconds

Oxygen is one of the most important aspects of life which we take for granted. Without oxygen there would be no life on earth, we could well be another Venus or Jupiter, an obscure barren planet devoid of life orbiting the solar system. Can you even contemplate a scenario without oxygen on earth?

Perhaps if the entire human race was made aware of the precious resource called oxygen and what would happen if Earth was without it, then there may be a heightened awareness of eco preservation. Check out these facts of an earth without oxygen for 5 seconds. The results are truly scary.
