Covid-19 pandemic has done little to slow climate change: report

Sep 10, 2020 09:22 IST

The Covid-19 pandemic has done very little to slow down the impact of climate change, according to the United in Science report. The report highlights that while the levels of carbon dioxide emissions fell during the lockdown, their concentrations in the atmosphere have continued to rise. The report adds adds that the pandemic has hindered efforts to observe these changes at a global level. Highlighting the irreversible impacts of climate change, the report stated that the world could see its warmest five years on record. For any remarkable change to occur, we could require a 'pandemic-sized' slowdown every year, till the end of the decade. The study mentioned there is an urgent need for long-term, inclusive and clean transitions to tackle climate change.
