  1. Good. The earth needs a fucking break.

  2. COULD. The biggest industries are still going strong. It’s the smaller businesses that suffer and will continue to do so.

  3. Don’t hold your breath it will ramp back up,sadly.

  4. Yeah. This, too, shall pass.

  5. Not the hero we deserve, but the hero we need.

  6. Dumb writing— If carbon emissions drop by the most since WW2, that does not mean they drop to “pre-World War II levels.”

  7. And our earth takes a moment to get a breath.

    From all the bad, this is good.

  8. This could be our chance to create a more sustainable, eco-friendly environment for future generations. We could turn this experience into something beneficial, if enough people believe in it.

  9. This could be a serious problem. It will have no immediate reduction in the greenhouse house effect because co2 is very slow to clear. The corresponding reduction in particulate matter in the atmosphere will reduce global dimming in a short period of time. Expect a very hot summer.

  10. And U.S. hit massive layoff during past few weeks while gaining near 300k COV19 patients
    With shitty U.S. health care system, losing job = losing health care insurance. Which means you are going to die with COV 19 without any treatment because you can never afford it.
    1. see doctor – $5000
    2. use Thermometer in hospital – $5000
    3. treatment – $80000
    4. new patient fee – $50000

    here you go, getting over 100k medical bill meanwhile losing your job.
    Go homeless in few weeks without doing anything wrong. (so stay home, don’t get sick and fuck US health care system)

  11. I think this is why the corona virus is out there..

    The earth needed a break to catch her breath and clean the air..

    what better way to do it, than to send a virus to slow everything down for a bit.
    She has tried earth quakes volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes even other virus’s and nothing has worked for her till now, she finally got it right..
