Dropped emissions all over COVID-19 lockdown will do ‘not anything’ for local weather exchange



While greenhouse gas emissions plummeted as the world locked down in response to the coronavirus pandemic, such dips will do “nothing” to slow climate change unless society moves away from fossil fuels, researchers have found. 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19, a pandemic, which it remains today. To slow the spread of the virus, countries around the world began implementing lockdown measures that limited travel and closed down factories and businesses. In turn, Earth-orbiting satellites saw a dramatic decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.
