In the build-up to the Christmas Lectures in 2012, the Royal Institution published a new video for every day of advent revealing the elements that really excite and inspire people. Dame Jane Goodall expresses her love of oxygen and its vital role in sustaining all animal and human life. Having studied chimpanzees in the rainforests since 1960, Dame Jane explains how the loss of the rainforests will have an impact on our atmosphere. The destruction of the forests releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, but also means there are fewer trees to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen though photosynthesis.
