Positive Impact of Coronavirus Lockdown

Greetings, friends!

In today's article, I'd like to do an analysis of a topic that you have been demanding the most, My girlfriend. I'm kidding. This isn't a Bollywood gossip website .This is and informational and educational channel

In today's article, I'd like to talk about something that you must've been witnessing around you during this lock down. How the sky has turned blue, (How) the air has become cleaner, (How) when you look up at the night sky, you can actually see the stars. The air has become so clear that the Himalayan peaks are visible from Jalandhar in Punjab, situated 140 kms away.  The residents of Jalandhar say that for the first time in 20-30 years, the air has become so clean that they are able to see the Himalayan peaks from Jalandhar .

Such news reports are pouring in from worldwide. The air has become cleaner, the water has become clearer, the pollution levels have fallen .So this is what I'd like to analyze in today's article and show you what is the impact of corona virus and lockdown on the environment?

What can we learn from this? And why are economy and environment always seen inversely proportional to one another? that when the economy stumbles, the environment begins to become better.

You would not even be able to recognize- it seems as if it is a city from a foreign country .This tells us how much difference does air pollution make in the beauty of a city .But most of the people in our country are not concerned with such issues If a mandir- masjid issue is raised, then hundreds of people would rise up to riot But if air pollution is talked about, nobody 's voice is heard . A question might arise in your minds here that if PM 2.5 levels have reduced so drastically under lock down, then the number of people dying of air pollution would also have become less . The lives of people must be getting saved due to the fall in air pollution A scientist from Stanford University has done a research regarding this . He collected the data of the PM 2.5 levels in the Chinese cities and compared it to the mortality rates and observed what impacts would falling PM 2.5 levels would have on the mortality rates And this research concluded that the falling levels of pollution in China in just this one month just in this one month.

More than 77,000 lives have been saved due to the decrease in air pollution It is such a massive number .Think about it yourself ,The total number of deaths due to the corona virus worldwide is around 75,000 right now at the time of the making this article . More than that number of lives have been saved just within China due to the decrease in air pollution . Not only the air, but the water of our rivers is also becoming clearer Raghav Chadda, the Delhi Jal Board vice chairman says that due to the stoppage of the industrial waste has definitely caused a positive impact on  the water quality of the Yamuna river .

The best example of this can be seen in photos . This is the Yamuna river in Delhi ,These photos have been captured from Delhi and Noida . It is quite unbelievable to see because compare it to how the Yamuna river appears normally

IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder IamLinkfeeder These photos show nothing but the future potential ,If the government constructs sewage treatment plants in the right manner and makes strong regulations for the companies and industries to treat their waste themselves, then this can happen and our rivers can appear this way . This is the condition of not only the Yamuna but also of the Ganga river Dr P.K Mishra, an IIT Professor in BHU states that a 40-50% improvement has been seen in the water quality of the Ganga . Maybe we should ensure such lockdowns every year for a week so that the entire population of the country realizes and sees how clear can the air and water become

They can catch a glimpse of the potential of where our country can reach . What do you feel about this .Write down in the comments below This lockdown has probably also caused some effect upon the wildlife and animal life Because a lot of articles are becoming viral in which rarely seen animals have come out on the streets because the streets are so deserted . Although, a lot of these articles were fake And I am not calling them fake in the sense that they are manipulated I'm calling it fake in the sense that it was not so uncommon for these animals to come out on the streets as the people were claiming it was But you can definitely say that the people were not observing this wildlife .

Now they are observing more because the roads have become so deserted during the lockdown .
So it is a good thing that the people are observing the biodiversity in and around them All of us are aware that carbon dioxide emissions are responsible for climate change If you look at the data of where the worldwide carbon dioxide emissions are emitted from, then you will notice that the transportation sector has a huge contribution in it And obviously, during the lockdown there has been a decline in all of it- lesser number of cars are plying lesser number of planes are flying and so, obviously, there is a massive decline in carbon dioxide emissions .

But how massive ? Experts are predicting that this is the biggest decline in carbon dioxide emissions after World War 2, approximately, a decline of 5% . But let us now move to the unpleasant news . Observe this chart This is the chart of the worldwide carbon emissions over the past 60 years .You can see that the worldwide carbon emissions have been steadily rising every year which has made the climate change from bad to worse , But notice the places where there are drops in the carbon emissions .

You will see there has been a drop in the 2008 Financial Crisis The carbon emissions had declined then Another drop was noticed in the Asian financial crisis, Another drop was noticed when the USSR broke up and the carbon emissions had reduced .

There was a Second Oil crisis and a First oil crisis- Then, the carbon emissions had declined Are you observing a pattern here? The pattern is that whenever the economy crashes, the carbon emissions go down and then it is a good news for the environment . There is an unfortunate inverse relation here between economy and environment . When the economy crashes, then it is a good news for the environment and when the economy booms, carbon emissions go up and it is a bad news for the environment

Why is this happening? This is happening because our economy is extremely inter linked with fossil fuels , Coal, oil, petroleum and all the other non renewable forms of energy . They are the primary sources of energy today, which run the transportation sector which run the manufacturing industry which are responsible for the generation of electricity generation worldwide .
This is the reason why, when the transport industry screeches to a halt  then the carbon emissions go down . When electricity demands fall worldwide, then the carbon emissions go down and this is the reason that when the lock downs are retracted and the world becomes "normal" again, then the carbon emissions and pollution are going to go back up again . This is what happened in China as well Their carbon emissions fell by approximately 25% in the months of February and March when they had enforced a lock down And as soon as they withdrew the lock downs, by the end of March, Their pollution and nitrogen dioxide levels have reached where they were prior to lock downs , But there is an opportunity among this unpleasant news . A lot of industries have already shut down and a lot of people have already faced job losses in this economic crisis . The government can use this opportunity to push the renewable energy industry . When the governments transfer money to the industries to revive themselves again, and to revive the economy again then the governments should focus more on the renewable energy . The coal, oil and petroleum industries should not be given a lot of support so that the shut industries remain shut and renewable energy gets a new lease of opportunity.

It remains to be seen how many actions do the governments take on this and how much pressure does the public maintains upon the governments . As of now, it remains so that all the positive effects that I told you about in this article are all temporary effects for a short term . The entire situation is going to revert to the same as soon as the lockdowns are withdrawn . The clear air and the clear waters that you witness is only for a short while- enjoy it because as soon as the lockdowns are withdrawn, the pollution and squalid conditions ar going to increase again . Except Unless you maintain pressure on the government and give priority to such issues . Share this article with your friends and family in order to make it reach to the rest of the public.
Thank you

Where is a Starfish's Butt?

I read a tweet and it really got me thinking about animals revolting. It's from Lawrence Ward who says, "The population "of Scotland is around 5.25 million and there are million cats in the world so if every cat decided to invade Scotland, each Scot would have tonight off around 114 cats and I don't think they could pull it off." (laughs) I don't think I could fight 114 cats and survive. Have you ever had to tangle with an angry cat that still had its claws? I have. And lemme tell you, gonna need a lot of the foamy liquid that you put on your cuts. Hydrogen peroxide. If cats revolt, much like the population of small wild animals inane area where there's a large domestic cat population, we'd get destroyed. Your cats a murderer. (whimsical music) Hello, and welcome to"Footnotes", the companion show to "Because Science" where I take all of your comments, questions, and corrections and then I bombard you with cats.
