New Delhi: Coronavirus lockdown has reduced carbon content worldwide by about 17 per cent. In the past month, worldwide carbon dioxide emissions have dropped by 17 percent, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change. This is the largest reduction in carbon emissions since World War II.
Scientists believe this will make life normal. According to scientists, pollution has decreased for a short time in terms of climate change. However this decline is ‘like the drops of the sea’.
A team of scientists in a study of carbon dioxide emissions during the Corona virus global epidemic assessed that pollution levels were declining. This year it will be between four and seven per cent, which is lower than last year.
Scientists believe that if a lockdown is announced throughout the year, pollution levels could be reduced by seven percent. In just one week in April, the U.S. cut its carbon dioxide emissions by a third.
China, the world’s largest carbon emitter, reduced its carbon pollution by about a quarter in February, while India and Europe reduced it by 26 and 27 per cent, respectively.
Pollution in northern India during the Corona has reached a 20-year low, according to the latest satellite data from the American space agency NASA. Compared with photos provided between 2016 and 2019 of aerosols in the atmosphere. All other cities, including the Indian capital Delhi, have seen drastic reductions in air, water and noise pollution. During the years 2018 and 2019, on April 5, the PM2.5 level was above three hundred. But this year the level has come down to 101 due to the lockdown.
