MIT’s Technology review has a good article this week: The unholy alliance of covid-19, nationalism, and climate change.
Among other things, it says:
The question, of course, is what happens as the pandemic recedes. In theory, this presents a new opportunity to get climate progress back on track. Stimulus packages designed to kick-start economic growth could include funding and policies to accelerate clean energy and climate adaptation projects, for example. The world will certainly be better equipped to face both pandemics and climate catastrophes if nations choose to more readily share resources, expertise, and information.
Bear that in mind, and let’s act accordingly. Our future still depends on it.
