Human Impacts on the Atmosphere as Revealed by COVID-19

Free event registration:


Changes in energy use, transportation, and manufacturing during the coronavirus pandemic can be connected to changes in air quality and emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. Panelists will discuss how this has created an experiment that can help us understand how human activity changes the environment and guide policies for a transition to a sustainable planet.
