Man Locked Himself in DIY Biodome to Raise Awareness About Climate Change

 

A Canadian man risked his life in an effort to educate the world about climate change. Kurtis Baute, aka the whimsical scientist, sealed himself in a DIY biodome to demonstrate the dangers of rising carbon dioxide levels. CTV News reports the man intended to remain in the structure for three days, relying solely on plants for oxygen. “I plan to breathe as calmly as possible because every breath I take will be affecting the environment,” he told the outlet. “So I’m going to just try to keep very calm about the fact that my breathing that impact the air.” Baute filled the 10-foot-cubed dome with about 200 plants, which include specifies of cacti to produce clean air during the night. He also equipped himself with devices that will monitor his vitals as well as the CO2 levels inside the “jar.” Baute told The Star Vancouver he would abort the mission if the situation became too hazardous to his health.
