New Research: COVID-19 Restrictions Will Not Have a Significant Impact on the Climate Crisis

A new study has revealed that restrictions in the coronavirus era will not have a significant impact on the climate crisis.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the view that restrictions imposed around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic may have a positive effect on climate change by causing a reduction in emissions. However, the results of a recent study will disappoint those who support this view.

According to a report in DW Turkish, a study conducted by the Canadian Center for Climate Modeling and Analysis (CCma) found that although restrictions imposed around the world led to a noticeable reduction in emissions, the impact of restrictions on climate change in the long term was “little” It showed that it would be “too little to prove.” Regarding the research, the results of which were published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers said, “Our results show that even a large reduction in emissions will have a small, even unprovable effect on the climate if restrictions are present for a short period of time.”

"Measures to Stimulate the Economy Are Important"

Pointing out that reducing global warming and bringing global average temperatures to a stable course can be possible by “zeroing” emissions on a regular basis every year, the researchers said, “For this reason, the important thing now is what kind of measures will be taken by countries to revive the economies that are in the process of recession in the corona period. “These measures can have long-term effects on emissions and significantly affect the course of climate change,” they said.

According to a study by the University of East Anglia, carbon dioxide emissions worldwide in 2020 decreased by 7% compared to 2019, due to corona restrictions. In the research, it was stated that this was the biggest reduction detected so far. However, in this study, it was emphasized that the temporary decrease in emissions due to corona restrictions is expected to have no long-term effects on the climate.
