As if we need more reasons to stay home (besides keeping people safe from a deadly virus), there are reports of a positive impact on the environment. Around the world, people are staying home, factories are closed, and travel is limited. What does this mean for the ecosystem?

In February, The New York Times reported China’s carbon dioxide emissions were down by 25% compared to the same period last year. Air pollution in major cities has declined significantly and waterways in Italy have cleared.

Experts warn these improvements are temporary, and climate actions following the virus are of great importance.
