Anyone wondering what is the good thing out of the pandemic? Well, as they say there is always a silver lining to every cloud. The cloud of this pandemic that is looming on our heads has certainly provided a silver lining to the alarming climate change situation.
REMEMBER THE TIMES WHEN CLIMATE CHANGE WAS THE SCARY THING WE USED TO SEARCH ON THE INTERNET?
According to several reports, the pandemic has proved to be a boon for the climate change situation.
WHAT ELSE IS FALLING WITH THE ECONOMY? OUR CARBON DIOXIDE LEVELS, NITROGEN LEVELS, ETC…

People all around the world have stopped using cars, flights have been cancelled, factories have been shut down, and lakes are being left alone. Due to all of theseges, not only are the humans saving their own lives but are in turn saving mother Earth too.
Look at that?
Rivers and lakes in Italy that were polluted for a very long time are now as clear as a crystal.

“If we can think about how to prepare for climate change like a pandemic, maybe there will be a positive outcome to all of this,” said Christopher Jones, lead developer of the CoolClimate Network, an applied research consortium at the University of California, Berkeley.
If you carefully think about the above statement, you would realise that no catastrophe will is so big that it cannot be dealt with. The important thing is that we deal with it in time.
As the famous saying goes Time and Tide wait for none. If you see Tide is the metaphor for Nature. And so yes, Time and Tide wait for none.
One day we will face a grim challenge with regard to our climate’s situation as is happening today. If we take precautions for now, we can save our Mother Earth.
If we value life every day, we don’t need to put our lives on hold, to survive!
