Positive effects of the lockdown

Positive effects of the lockdown: Carbon dioxide emissions worldwide fell by 17 percent

Most countries in the world are in a state of paralysis due to the corona virus epidemic. Industry, factories, business, road transport, etc. are almost at a standstill. Although the downturn has had a negative impact on the global economy, it has also reduced carbon dioxide emissions to Earth. Studies by researchers from different countries have shown that this year's carbon dioxide emissions are lower than in 1019.

The study found that the Earth's carbon dioxide emissions decreased by 17 percent during the lockdown period. Researchers say that if woodcuts continue worldwide this year, carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by seven percent, and if woodcuts are removed soon, they will be reduced by four percent. Researchers say that for the first time since World War II, carbon dioxide emissions have dropped dramatically.


In April, the United States emitted only one-third of its carbon dioxide emissions.

Researchers say that in February, China emitted only a quarter of its carbon dioxide emissions. Similarly, in India it has declined by 26 per cent and in Europe by 27 per cent. As the world's largest emitters of greenhouse gases fall, so does the world's carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon dioxide gas can remain in the atmosphere for centuries. This gas is affecting the greenhouse to increase the temperature of the earth.

According to scientists, global carbon dioxide emissions have dropped by 17 percent as countries around the world have resorted to effective logging to prevent the spread of the corona virus. A detailed study report so far on lockdown and its impact on the environment has been published in the journal Nature. According to the study report, the use of cars during lockdowns is almost zero, so carbon emissions have been reduced drastically. About half of the 17 percent reduction in carbon emissions was due to reduced car use, according to scientists involved in the study.


But scientists have expressed concern that carbon emissions will rise again as cars are being used as wood is being eased in various European countries.
Scientists have expressed concern that carbon emissions could be much higher in the near future. He called on politicians around the world to take real and long-term measures to reduce carbon emissions. He urged to make the means of transportation and the means used for the travel of people environment friendly.

Analysis of carbon emissions data from 69 countries, which account for 97 percent of global carbon emissions, shows that emissions have declined by 17 percent since the effective implementation of woodcuts.


In early April, daily carbon emissions fell 17 percent from a year earlier, following a crackdown on coronavirus infections. This means that 17 million tons of carbon emissions have been reduced on a daily basis. Emissions from careful transportation have been reduced by 43 percent, scientists said. Similarly, emissions from industry and fuel production have declined in the same proportion.
