Covid-19 and Climate

COVID-19 is not guaranteed to slow or reverse the climate crisis, but it does provide us with a chance. See this first peer-reviewed scientific paper on the subject.

Quote from the abstract (summary) of the paper:

‘Daily global CO2 emissions decreased by –17% (–11 to –25% for ±1σ) by early April 2020 compared with the mean 2019 levels, just under half from changes in surface transport. At their peak, emissions in individual countries decreased by –26% on average. The impact on 2020 annual emissions depends on the duration of the confinement, with a low estimate of –4% (–2 to –7%) if prepandemic conditions return by mid-June, and a high estimate of –7% (–3 to –13%) if some restrictions remain worldwide until the end of 2020. Government actions and economic incentives postcrisis will likely influence the global CO2 emissions path for decades.’

Page Guide

Feel free to use the information on this page in conjunction with the emerging concept and practice of Pandemic Strategy. See the notes under my YouTube video here for an introduction.

Watch out for the flash of pink in the compendium page codes below. The pink codes indicate websites that are updated daily. Indigo codes, underlined, indicate websites that have been updated within the past three days (since the date written at the top of this page). As you are a hot and heroic activist I know you sometimes need to cut through to the most up-to-date relevant information as quickly as possible!

Literature titled in blue indicates a mental health risk. Make sure you don’t keep this traumatic information to yourself. It needs processing, including by sharing with others. For more on mental health and the climate and ecological crisis, visit this directory page.

Key climate data sites are listed at the top, then follows the full list of climate crisis science, news and policy sites & online literature, in alphabetical order, including hottest links, young adults’ links, key climate data and !Denial Busters!

!Denial Busters! sites are then listed underneath the main list, and papers & reports underneath again.

Remember that organisations / bodies which subscribe to the flawed ‘Paris Narrative’ (see this page) are marked !Paris! in the lists. These organisations / websites etc still have educational value, if viewed discerningly.
