Since plankton in the oceans make half our oxygen, will the oil flowing to the oceans destroy our atmosphere?

    The amount of oil is rather small when compared to the size of the oceans so, therefore, no.

    KT is correct, but I would say that it is a figurative drop in a bucket, (actually much much much less than that). It isn't going to cause much damage at all to plankton IMO. It won't even affect the emission of O2 temporarily. It might add carbon compounds (fertizer) to the ocean that provides more life. There will be some local problems but not a global one.
