I spent a little time watching some of the local TV news and weather drones chattering about Earth Day yesterday.
I know – I forgot to celebrate it, too, right?
And the line among the various weather drones, in noting that pollution is at record lows around the planet, was simultaneously predictable and a crushing face palm;
“it just shows what people can do to Fight climate change when they set their mind to it”
Yes. When the economy slows to a record halt, vaporizing trillions of dollars in personal and institutional wealth, throwing millions/tens of millions, really, into at least short term poverty and possibly much worse, with industries shut down and hundreds of thousands of small businesses vanquished over a little more than six weeks, the air will get a little clean.
