Progress of the air in the world
Although this world crisis is striking us of different ways, let's see another side of the currency. The stagnation in the transport transport, the cessation of many industries or the reduction in the production of the same ones has resulted in the progress of the environmental environment, hence, our planet, he is resting of big emission of CO2 in the whole world, as it is indicated in the map:
Several weeks behind, studies and images captured by satellites, reflect one reduction of 25 % as for the emission of CO2. Especially, the fall in the concentration level of nitrogen dioxide in Italy and China it has been clear. And the fact is that several factories closed and the streets turned out to be empty due to the measurements of containment adopted in every country. This effect was giving itself cash as it was fulfilled quarantine at home and fall in the production or closing industry. Motorized vehicles and the emission of carbon that the factories dismiss in large numbers, practically disappeared.
This means, that our planet is“breathing”again and it will help to to diminish the contamination load that so much it is affecting to climate change that we have come experimenting on last years.
It is a footpath of light that is opened and is encouraging for toma of conscience worldwide and, consequently, leaves us as a teaching to value our environment and our health. Without it we will only have discomforts, it takes us away from those we love the most, we cannot work or enjoy our nature.
We had so many privileges ... our freedom, enjoying nature ... However, these activities as banal or simple we cannot do and it hurts, but we must row pa´lante and not let us overcome. We are doing our planet good. Look through the closest window you have ... do you hear the sound of tranquility? Nature is breathing fresh air again in many years.
How many of you would like to be outside the house and breathe the fresh air that we are giving ourselves?
