climate change and the coronavirus

With the COVID-19 outbreak, a virus that has infected over 90,000 people worldwide, I’ve started to wonder how this may impact our wellbeing on an environmental level. Global warming, a phenomena caused by human activity, such as the releasing of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere poses many consequences for Earth’s inhabitants.Continue reading “climate change and the coronavirus” Continue reading Continue reading

Today, one of the most pressing issues in society is climate change. The Earth, due to pollution and the ensuing increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, is experiencing global warming. Average temperatures around the globe have increased a few degrees Celsius in the past few decades. While that may not seem like a lot,… Continue reading Continue reading
