According to all the previous stories about AGW, this little depression in CO2 emissions will have zero effect.Interesting effects of the reduction in human activity include changes in the patterns of seismic vibrations and a reduction in air pollution.
The latter may affect gardeners if it reverses some of the effects of global warming which have been adversely affected garden crops. In the past 2 years it has been too rainy and cloudy here (Piedmont of Virginia). I'd love to see the climate return to the old "normal"!
Ahhhh... too bad. I was hoping simply that ceasing to pump more CO2 into the atmosphere for a while would have an effect. Well, then, I shall direct my hope toward efforts to pull the carbon out of the atmosphere, coupled with a transformation to technology which produces fewer emissions.According to all the previous stories about AGW, this little depression in CO2 emissions will have zero effect.
This is just one example of articles talking about if we were to stop 100% emissions. https://phys.org/news/2017-10-global-doesnt-emissions.html
Excerpted Quote: "We've clearly hit a nerve. According to surveys, a great many people believe that global warming will stop if we stop emitting greenhouse gases. Many even assume that temperatures will fall back to pre-industrial levels within a couple of decades. But climate scientists have long known that that's not the case. CO2 has a much longer life span than that – it stays in the atmosphere for thousands of years. So, we need to state quite clearly: Global warming will not stop when emissions stop."
This covid-19 thing is not a big deal, if you look at the big picture...it will pass and life will soon go back to normal.
If you're feeling the effects of AGW, one possible solution is to move here to Jacksonville Fl. I've haven't seen the effects of AGW here; I have no problem growing anything
Agreed.Any barrier has to have some positive effect.
