CNN reported that "India has seen its first year on year reduction in carbon emissions for the first time in four decades, new analysis released Tuesday shows, " on 12 May, and you can get much information about this from:
During such days, full of grim news by the virus, I am pleased to hear this kind of bright news over climate which used to be among some of seriously being considered as global issues. In fact, it is the story in not only in India alone, but same phenomena are seen in China and the U.S. With the governments announcement of the lockdown, ranging industry from factories to trasnportation has virtually decreased. As this reduction of exodus or people's move from town to town, the demand of oil consumption has plummented, which should be the key factor of cleaning otherwise smoggy atmosphere.
I am extremely glad if this less carbon emissions than it used to be continuously and permanently because needless to innocuous atmosphere must benefit our health as well as this plane; but unfortunately I assume that would not be the case if this pandemic is over.
Following a strict mesurement by governments, many industries face huge loss by less demand, and I frequently got to see the news about companies filed for Chapter 11 bankrupcy. If this stringent lockdown are eliminated, what do you expect to come next?
I expect that to compensate for loss which abates the company during the pandemic many comapnies will run their factories or machines on a larger scale, which means we are going to see carbon emissions contaminate the atmosphere at faster rate again.
This is the fear, and fear of backlash of COVID-19 on our planet.
I am not saying that company stop working because it's going to be disaster if reopen, but I do not want them to work without any serious consideration over climate because that is selfish in my book. Who wants to live in devastated planet by increaing carbon emmisions?-Nobody. Nobody want to reside such planet.
I hope we can go back to normacy as fast as we can by containing the virus practicing social distance and wearing a face covering, but do not hope to see a city with smoggy and polluted atmosphere again.
Take care of Yourself and Each Other. I thank to all workers on Frontline to fight against the virus, sacrificing thier lives.
