With a global pandemic in full swing, climate change is no longer the main emergency hitting the news. As countries all over world have introduced social distancing and isolation restrictions to limit the spread of the virus, carbon emissions have dropped as non-essential sectors have ceased their usual activities and travel has reduced as people stay at home.
