  • Novel coronavirus reduces air pollution in China

    57

    The National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) has found that
    Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) led to a sharp decline in pollution levels...
    across China
    A decline in nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels was first noticed near Wuhan,
    epicentre of the outbreak
    and eventually spread across the whole of China
    NASA maps compared emissions...
    from January 1-20, 2020 — before quarantine was imposed,
    and February 10-25, 2020, after the safeguards were in place
    NO2 is highly noxious
    and can lead to severe respiratory problems

  • Coronavirus: blue skies over Chinese cities as Covid-19 lockdown temporarily cuts air pollution

    3:30

    Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here:


    China may have seen its first decline in carbon emissions in three years amid lockdowns of major cities that have closed factories and transport systems around the country to fight the spread of the deadly coronavirus. The US space agency Nasa recently released satellite images that show a drastic reduction in air pollution levels. On February 21, 2020, the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) in Finland, said that China’s carbon emissions dropped by about 100 million metric tonnes over just two weeks. But researchers caution that the environmental impact of the Covid-19 epidemic may only be temporary, as they predicted emissions will rebound as China resumes industrial activities.

    China had a significant decrease in nitrogen dioxide pollution in cities like Beijing during February, when factories and streets were closed as authorities attempted to stop the spread of the virus, according to the European Space Agency (ESA) Copernicus satellite image.

    Images from the European Space Agency (ESA) Copernicus satellite released on March 19 revealed a dramatic reduction in nitrogen dioxide emissions in all major Chinese cities between 20 December 2019 and 16 March 2020.

  • Egyptians notice cuts in air pollution from COVID lockdown

    3:16

    (20 May 2020) LEAD IN:
    The world cut its daily carbon dioxide emissions by 17% at the peak of the pandemic shutdown last month, a new study has found.
    In Egypt air pollution levels have dropped in Cairo as a result of the ongoing lockdown imposed by COVID-19.

    STORY-LINE:
    The quieter streets, clearer skies and seemingly clearer waters following lockdown here in the Egyptian capital Cairo.
    Senior environment officials say in the past month air pollution across the country has fallen in the past month.
    And it is not just Egypt.
    In a new study of global carbon dioxide emissions during the coronavirus pandemic, an international team of scientists calculated that pollution levels have seen the biggest annual drop in carbon emissions since World War II.
    Emissions are now are heading back up - and for the year will end up between 4% and 7% lower than 2019 levels.
    It’ll be 7% if the strictest lockdown rules remain all year long across much of the globe, 4% if they are lifted soon according to the study published Tuesday May 19, in the journal Nature Climate Change.
    Mustafa Murad, Air Quality Control Officer at the Environment Ministry, says air pollution in Cairo has fallen by 36% since the government stepped up its measures to stem the spread of the virus.
    With a nationwide night-time curfew, a massive number of vehicles have been taken of of the streets every day, resulting in a clear reduction of their emissions, which are one of the main causes of pollution in Cairo.
    Dr. Mohamed Abdel-Karim Abdrabo, an expert in environmental economics says: When you have less traffic, less traffic congestion, when you have less economic activities it means less emissions so the quality of the environment in terms of air, water, soil would be different and we for the first time managed to see it first hand during this lockdown
    In the coastal city of Alexandria, residents are enjoying a bright blue skyline and unusually clear Mediterranean waters.
    Abdrabo believes we human beings need to reconsider our lifestyle to address the issue of environmental damage.
    We need to have some sort of a balance between our economic activities, our human activities and the quality of the environment, we need to work on that we need to reconsider the whole style of life that we are living, says Abdrabo.
    Egypt has closed schools, universities, mosques, churches and archaeological sites including the famed Giza Pyramids in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
    All international air travel has been stopped, and restaurants, coffee shops, shopping malls and gyms have been closed at night to encourage people to stay home.
    The government has also imposed a partial lockdown on specific areas of  the country, barring entry to some popular tourist resorts and cities.
    Egypt's population has exceeded 100 million and is largely concentrated along the Nile Delta and especially in the Greater Cairo area, which includes Cairo province and the urban areas of Giza and Qalyubia provinces.
    The main pollution sources in Egyptian cities are motor vehicle emissions, transportation, open burning of waste, factories and constructions.
    For a week in April, the United States cut its carbon dioxide levels by about one-third. China, the world’s biggest emitter of heat-trapping gases, sliced its carbon pollution by nearly a quarter in February, according to the new study.
    India and Europe cut emissions by 26% and 27% respectively.

  • Can Major U.S. Airlines Survive The Coronavirus Outbreak?

    10:21

    The golden age for airlines could be ending thanks to the spike in worldwide cases of COVID-19. A drop in crude prices would normally be a positive for airlines. However, border closings, event cancellations, and the potential for travelers to end up quarantined could cause a cascade of failures throughout the aviation industry. Now, major US airlines say they need a massive bailout from Congress to avoid laying off scores of workers.

    Can Major U.S. Airlines Survive The Coronavirus Outbreak?

  • Coronavirus: nitrogen dioxide emissions drop over Italy

    16

    Data from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite have revealed that nitrogen dioxide (NO2) emissions have dropped in Italy, especially in Northern Italy. The drop seems to coincide with the nationwide lockdown implemented in Italy to combat the new coronavirus (COVID-19).

    The animation shows the fluctuation of nitrogen dioxide emissions across Europe from 1 January 2020 until 11 March 2020, using a 10-day moving average.

    Claus Zehner, ESA’s Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission manager, noted that: “Although there could be slight variations in the data due to cloud cover and changing weather, we are very confident that the reduction in emissions that we can see, coincides with the lockdown in Italy causing less traffic and industrial activities.”

    These data were obtained through the Tropomi instrument on board Sentinel-5P. The Sentinel-5 Precursor – also known as Sentinel-5P – is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere.

    The satellite carries the Tropomi instrument to map a multitude of trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols – all of which affect the air we breathe and therefore our health, and our climate.

  • Coronavirus outbreak: How the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting climate change

    3:47

    Catherine Abreu of Climate Action Network Canada talks about the positive environmental impact that has come as a result of global social distancing measures and strict lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    We never want to see these kinds of environmental benefits coming along with such tremendous human suffering, Abreu says, but we are seeing significant emission reductions around the world.

    With less human traffic in the world, animals are coming back into spaces that usually are overpopulated, there is a reduction of air pollution and an acceleration of closure of holes in the ozone layer.

    What does the pandemic mean for climate change, and what lessons can we learn from it?

  • Why Coronavirus won’t save the environment | COVID-19 and climate

    8:32

    Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees:

    The way the world has responded to the Coronavirus is very telling of how the world could respond to the climate crisis. COVID-19 is a serious threat and governments were right to impose strong measures to fight the pandemic. But the fact that many governments reacted so drastically to the coronavirus outbreak proves that strong economies do have the structural, financial and political ability to react quickly to a life-threatening crisis.

    Now that we know what’s possible, the corona pandemic actually gives us a unique and historical window of opportunity to make the structural changes needed to transition towards a fair and ecologically sustainable economic system. Unlike what happened during the 2008 financial crisis, this time governments should not aim to perpetuate a system that has proven unsustainable for both people and nature.

    Below are readings and some resources we can all use to push for a transition towards an economic system that respects our planetary boundaries. This is just a selection, if you have more interesting resources, share in the comments!

However, the respite is only temporary. In Bayankhongor, the temperature barely rises above -20°C in winter. That’s usually when pollution levels spike, due to the burning of coal to keep warm. UNICEF had declared Mongolia’s air pollution problem a child health crisis in 2018.

  • How much does air pollution amplify COVID-19 severeness? | COVID-19 Special

    11:57

    A toxic and potentially deadly partnership - air pollution and COVID-19: There is a strong correlation between air pollution and COVID-19 mortality rates. The risk of dying from the disease is higher the longer we are exposed to air polluted with these particles. The coronavirus is a respiratory disease. It attacks the lungs and other organs, in its attempt to infect its host. But it has another strategy - air pollution. Scientists believe it uses fine particulate matter as a carrier. Studies show the pollution also lays the groundwork for the virus, aggravating the throat and lungs, to make us more susceptible to COVID.

    Two recent studies from Harvard and ProPublica found that COVID-19 can be more severe—and even deadlier—in areas with high levels of air pollution. The research was based on hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and coronavirus deaths in more than 3,000 U.S. counties.

    The peer-reviewed study from ProPublica found that air pollution could help explain the disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths in places like Georgia and Louisiana, which had counties ranked near the top.

  • How the world emergency Coronavirus showed a decline in Air Pollution level in China

    4:30

    The world is facing a global pandemic. The governments have declared national emergencies. Empty streets. People locked in their houses.

    Does this sound like some ‘doomsday’ movie plot? Probably yes.

    But unfortunately, this is what’s happening in the world right now.

    The coronavirus epidemic that started in the Wuhan district of Hubei Province in China on 17th November 2019 has now become a threat to the world. The most alarming thing about this COVID-19 virus is that its symptoms are not visible immediately and it may take 2-14 days before they appear. This has led to its viral spread.

    From China, the virus first spread to Thailand. Since then it is spreading at an unstoppable rate all around the world. Currently, the Chinese government has imposed a quarantine in Wuhan. The city has been under lockdown to prevent further spread. Several other cities and countries have been under quarantine or lockdown looking at the severe spread.

    As of 19th March 2020 1400 hrs, a total of 2,18,943 people have been infected and the pandemic has resulted in 8,957 casualties across the globe.

    Amongst this pandemic chaos in the world, recently we noticed one of its surprising effects.

    On 3rd March 2020, NASA released a satellite image of China which shows a drastic drop in the pollution in some Chinese regions, including Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Wuhan. The map shows the level of atmospheric NO2 in the areas before and after the Chinese government imposed quarantine.

    It shows the NO2 level over two periods – January 1-20 when the pollution was higher and February 10-25 when the NO2 concentration has almost diminished. The pollution level in these regions generally drops during this time of the year due to Lunar New Year, but the decline has never been so stark. The emission reduction was first evident in and near Wuhan, but then eventually spread across the country.

    The effect of air pollution was also observed during the SARS outbreak back in 2003. In China, the probability of the fatality rate was twice as higher in regions with poor quality air than those having good air quality.

    Is this decline in Air Pollution linked to the virus spread?
    The answer is yes.

    The US space agency says that the drop in NO2 level is linked partly to the economic slowdown.

    Since the outbreak, the city has been under quarantine. Chinese authorities have shut down all local businesses and transportation to and from Wuhan. Most parts of China are under lockdown. People are staying back at home, halting planes, trains, subways, and most private vehicles. The operations of factories and power plants have been suspended. The curb in transportation and industrial emission is what has led to NO2 reduction.

    This has resulted in economic lockdown in China. It led to a positive impact as the major sources of pollution in China are industrial emissions from major manufacturing hubs and a surge in vehicular emission due to the increased population. The quarantine has put a reign on these factors.

    this reduction in emissions has been observed in multiple countries. According to FlightRadar24, the aircraft flight traffic website, global air traffic has reduced by 4.3% in February.

    Is this a silver lining?

    Although the reduction in pollution concentration seems like a positive outcome of this unfortunate COVID-19 outbreak, it is only short-lived. It can make a small tweak but is not going to mitigate climate change.

    Once the crisis is under control and the economy takes back its hold, there are chances that this positive impact will be erased. China will try to compensate for the economic loss by speeding up the manufacturing process and ramping up industries and power plants.

    This outbreak can teach us a lesson on how to remold our lifestyle to curb pollution emission. Reducing unimportant travel frequencies, opting for remote work, and using more greener ways of living are some ways we are learning that can help us in the long run.

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The governments all over the world have taken immediate and prompt actions to prevent the infection. This shows that we can take strict measures for environmental protection also.

    The cleaner air currently will bring some relief to the people of China. But of course, it comes with an unimaginable cost of human lives. The world is united to fight the situation, and we need to focus on the cumulative emission to really solve the pollution problem.

  • Coronavirus: nitrogen dioxide emissions drop over Italy

    41

    New data from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite reveal the decline of air pollution, specifically nitrogen dioxide emissions, over Italy. This reduction is particularly visible in northern Italy which coincides with its nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

    The animation shows the fluctuation of nitrogen dioxide emissions across Europe from 1 January 2020 until 11 March 2020, using a 10-day moving average. These data are thanks to the Tropomi instrument on board the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite which maps a multitude of air pollutants around the globe.

    Claus Zehner, ESA’s Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission manager, comments, “The decline in nitrogen dioxide emissions over the Po Valley in northern Italy is particularly evident.

    “Although there could be slight variations in the data due to cloud cover and changing weather, we are very confident that the reduction in emissions that we can see, coincides with the lockdown in Italy causing less traffic and industrial activities.”

    Josef Aschbacher, ESA’s Director of Earth Observation Programmes, says, “Copernicus Sentinel-5P Tropomi is the most accurate instrument today that measures air pollution from space. These measurements, globally available thanks to the free and open data policy, provide crucial information for citizens and decision makers.

    The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was recently declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, with more than 125 000 current cases of the disease reported globally. In Italy, the number of coronavirus cases drastically soared making it the country with the largest number of cases outside of China.

    In an attempt to reduce the spread of the disease, Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced a lockdown of the entire country – closing schools, restaurants, bars, museums and other venues across the country.

    The Sentinel-5 Precursor – also known as Sentinel-5P – is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere. The satellite carries the Tropomi instrument to map a multitude of trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols – all of which affect the air we breathe and therefore our health, and our climate.

    Given the growing importance and need for the continuous monitoring of air quality, the upcoming Copernicus Sentinel-4 and Sentinel-5 missions, as part of the EU’s Copernicus programme, will monitor key air quality trace gases and aerosols. These missions will provide information on air quality, stratospheric ozone and solar radiation, as well as climate monitoring.

  • China: Blue skies above Beijing as air pollution plummets due to virus slowdown

    2:26

    Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe

    With over 80,000 cases confirmed of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout China, factory and transportation activities have declined, helping lead to a surprise relief in air pollution. Clear skies were seen Tuesday from the once-crowded Second and Third ring roads in Beijing.

    Chinese companies have gradually resumed work over the past two weeks, but many workers are remaining at home in order to avoid the further spread of the coronavirus. Recent NASA satellite images show what the US space agency describes as 'significant decreases' in air pollution over China. NASA attributes this in part to the economic slowdown amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    According to Mr. Zhu, a Didi driver in Beijing, the number of orders he has received from the app have dropped to 1-2 per hour during off-peak times.

    Mr. Teng, a Beijing citizen, thinks the air quality always improves during springtime and that traffic is not the main cause of pollution in the city. There are barely smog days during springtime. I don't think it is about the virus epidemic, he said. However, with fewer cars on the streets, the traffic is noticeably running more smoothly.
