Are you wondering, as we are, how coronavirus is impacting climate change? Are there benefits happening right now from fewer cars on the road due to people sheltering in place? Are fewer factories operating and thereby emitting fewer greenhouse gasses? What is the prognosis after we make it through this pandemic? Will Mother Earth have healed a little bit? Only time will tell what the answer is about the future, but we find it hopeful to see glimpses of positive change in what we’re reading. We’re following some of our favorite publications and listening to knowledgeable experts. (The graphic to the write is from the Opinion section of the New York Times.)
