Right watched Avatar and the visuals blew me away. However.... the humans need breathing gear, yet the fire's all burn perfectly. So why is the air not fit for humans to breathe?
The only thing i can think is that the plants give off a spore which is poisonious to humans.
Anybody have any thoughts on this i know it is random but it bugged me for some reason.

It's called the magic of the movies. This may shock you but it's not real. :p

Someone in the movie spoke of the atmosphere and that 10 seconds would paralyze you and 4 minutes would kill you. Pretty sure they would have used "knock out", or "make you unconscious" in place of paralyze if there was just a lack of oxygen. There must be something in the air that is incompatible with humans. Good question.

Interesting post above. Useless and annoying. This may shock you but you're not quite as cool as you think you are. :p

Think I found exactly what you were looking for, assuming the video game bio on Pandora was written by Cameron. The Bio states the following:

"Pandora is more volcanically active than earth. There are vents both on the land and under the oceans. Many of the mountains and other surface features are of recent volcanic origin. Numerous hot springs and geysers dot the landscape and there are several rivers that are almost boiling at the place where they erupt from underground aquifers. All of these serve to maintain the local concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas that are deadly to unprotected humans."
