COVID-19 spread causes air pollution and CO2 levels to fall

The spread of the coronavirus disease has also caused some secondary things to happen as the quality of air has improved due to factories being shut in the three hotspots of China, Iran and Italy. Satellite images have revealed that the levels of pollution have fallen since the countries were brought to a standstill.

It's kind of nice out there. I think this stay at home situation is going to have an influence on people, and will get some change in how things are run. A large percentage of jobs can be done from home, which saves gas and pollution and lost hours in commute.

A 1 hour commute means 10 hours per week, with vacations 500 hours yearly wasted. 5000 hours for my 10 year career. At 22$ that's 110,000$ of my time. I could retire on this.

Air pollution I can understand.... but CO2? Check out the movie Climate Hustle 2 in theaters later this year.

Now all Republicans have to do is draw parallels with the lowered CO2 emissions to the coronavirus and the next time people say zero emissions remind them that this is what it would feel like.

Somewhere a statistician is thinking: if on the balance the deaths resulting from the virus are greater or lower than the deaths caused by pollution and CO2.

Out of Bad comes Good. But it’s only temporary. Once this virus passes ... the worlds pent up energy will take us right back to where we were!

Funny. I have been told for freaking DECADES that America is the biggest polluter and needs to “DOOOOO SOMETHING”... Imagine my surprise.

Just shows the ignorance in ppl. We are the #1 polluters absolutely. If we could just go green this probably wouldn't be a story

Well this just destroyed the climate change conspiracy theories in a hurry. It's awfully hard to make these claims and a week or even months later to claim that weather events (which are not scientifically linked to climate) are being driven by man made co2 production. They really painted themselves in a corner this time.

This headline from the "Independent". Haha. What far left #FakeNews! "Climate change helped coronavirus spread — and your AC means it probably won't die in summer".

if the world is getting warmer even after the wu flu then not even curbing emissions can stop global warming

So if the CO2 is a pong term and permanent issue as the 'consensus' of scientists says, why is it able to drop so readily? Trees gotta eat, yo.
