Silver linings of pandemic and economic shut down:
“Forecasters expect emissions to fall more than 5% in 2020, the greatest annual reduction on record.”
“But it’s still short of the 7.6% decline that scientists say is needed every year over the next decade to stop global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius.”
Let’s not let this crisis go to waste: let’s fix stakeholder capitalism and even as we rush full-on to restore economic growth, let’s keep energy and commitment to reducing emissions, addressing health care gaps and healing Mother Earth.
For our own sake.
