What climate change has done to COVID-19 and what COVID-19 have done to climate change!

Hello everyone my name is decisive_redcurrant and this is my post on what COVID-19 has done to climate change and what climate change has done to the coronavirus

As a lot of you may know the coronavirus is a disease that has been going around the world also known as COVID-19 but the impact of COVID-19 has done in the climate change has done a lot and the impact that climate change is done to COVID-19 also in this post I’ll be explaining what they have both done to each other and the differences that they both have in common

Covid-19 to climate change

Was thinking about this post COVID-19 my opinion has done a lot of damage to climate change why well in the Houses of Parliament they declared that in October we all as a country had to stop using petrol manage cars and try and use electric cars here in the UK well because a lot of people are having reported cases of having the virus a lot of ambulances and cars I’ve been driving to hospitals and there is ambulances and cars Are powered by petrol which is polluting the air because that petrol that are steaming out of the car is polluting the air which is a part of climate change

Also The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc in countries across the globe, causing a global health crisis and forcing economies to slow down due to the strict quarantine measures. However, the outbreak has also impacted the environment in an intriguing way. As the pandemic spreads in different parts of the world, its consequences run farther than closed borders, scarce hand sanitizer, and social distancing protocols. According to BBC News they also said that COVID-19 has had a little Impact with climate change I think that we should concentrate on the coronavirus first before we are going to climate change so that we can get the problems with COVID-19 to climate change is fixed and then we can maybe go onto the page that climate change needs to be stopped and we should stop polluting our Earth and make it green again but what are your details on the coronavirus impact on climate change what do you think?

Climate change to Covid-19

According to google There is no evidence of a direct connection between climate change and the emergence or transmission of COVID-19 disease. As the disease is now well established in the human population, efforts should focus on reducing transmission and treating patients.

After researching and research in fact I really couldn’t find anything that proved that climate change has been affecting COVID-19 but what do you think about that do you think there is a reason why climate change is affecting COVID-19 or do you think that there is a reason COVID-19 is affecting climate change climate change isn’t affecting COVID-19

Thank you for listening tommy post hope you enjoyed it!!

    Very interesting post, decisive_redcurrant, and it's an original angle to look at how climate change influences coronavirus, rather than the other way round. I wonder if anyone else has thoughts on how climate change might influence how countries react to it? Thank you for telling us about your sources, too.

    I think that climate change has had a small impact on COVID-19. Reusable masks have been promoted so that single-use ones don't pollute the environment and end up in landfill.
    I think that COVID-19 has had a positive impact on climate change, since less vehicles were used, lessening people's carbon footprint, and helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

      Do you think that the reduced use of cars will continue after the pandemic eventually ends?

        This is possible, because some people will realise what a positive impact COVID-19 has had on their carbon footprint, but some people won’t.

      I agree with you by here because Covid-19 has helped with climate change. Did you know a river in Italy has been clean for the first time in 60 years because people haven't been able to go out! The masks have had a big impact on the climate because people are just throwing their masks everywhere. I continually see used masks just thrown on the floor! This needs to change!

    I think when you talk about the relationship between the pandemic and climate change, you don't only refer to the physical aspects such as deaths, falling economy, and the likes. I feel that one of the most important effects that the pandemic has had relating to climate change is in the mental aspect. Because of the covid-19 pandemic, we have somehow began to look at climate change with an air of seriousness. |This is true especially for my immediate society where the effects of the pandemic have been described as mundane when compared to the coming problems associated with climate change .My community members have begun looking as climate change in a serious manner like never before. In essence I believe that the pandemic and climate change affect each other in much more subtle ways than the obvious visible ways

    It’s a very good post, so I want to say my opinion.
    I think Climate changes and Covid19 are two crises so the climate changesaffect the air quality ,drinking,the food we eat ,and shelter..etc and all the factors that affect the health .
    I feel that climate changes affect every things on the earth and it’s so serious than the Covid19 bit we are worried more from the Covid ,I think because it can harm our bodies at all ,and this our fears to die with Covid

      I'm not entirely sure about this, energetic_king—can you please tell us where you found that the lack of oxygen amid the pandemic has contributed to global warming?

    I think covid-19 has change climate change for the better. There is cleaner water, cleaner air and cleaner a cleaner world. People say that covid-19 is bad but I think it did as much good in this world as bad. It made people change for the better and it made the world more healthy.

      A good point miraculous_orca. Do you think there will continue to be cleaner water and air, after the pandemic?

    climate changes have affected the world and countries. Covid-19 has stopped traveling, working and everyone wearing masks when they have to go to the shops and stores. It left kids home schooling , parents home working and deaths in every country.

        How has climate change affected the spread of epidemics and diseases as in the Corona virus ???
        According to the British Cambridge study, which clarifies the relationship between climate change and the Corona virus, and that there are major climate causes that spread epidemics:
        1. The impact of global warming on how to redistribute bats carrying viruses that kill humans
        2. Increasing contact between humans and wild animals, climate change has created a suitable environment for species of bats carrying dangerous viruses and diseases that are mainly found in Southeast Asia and have moved to residential areas.
        3. Global warming contributes to the spread and reproduction of mosquitoes such as the tiger mosquito that causes dengue
        4- The melting of the polar ice in the north contains viruses and bacteria that disappeared on the face of the earth thousands of years ago while buried with the corpses of animals
        When this ice melts due to climate change, these viruses will return and appear, and we do not know what they are and how they will affect humans
        This is what makes indicators worrying in the future
        This also indicates that the Coronavirus is linked to climate change and human behavior

    At the time the COVID-19 outbreak was declared a global pandemic, climate change was at the forefront of political conversations and agendas. It was considered to be a crucial time to take decisive action to protect the future of the planet. However, the world’s spotlight moved away from climate change as the impact of the pandemic wore on.Although the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change do not immediately appear similar, upon closer inspection a number of significant shared factors are revealed. Both crises are attributed to substantial unnecessary loss of life.COVID-19 is known to impact particularly the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, causing severe respiratory disease, and climate change affects air quality, drinking water, food supply and shelter -in the journal Science of the Total Environment revealed evidence that climate change may have played a direct causal role in the emergence of the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic!

      What a good point! I had never considered the close link between the 2 before. I think this is because climate change is not something that I feel has directly affected me but there have been so many restrictions in place and so many things we have all lost out on due to covid, I saw this as a bigger issue.

    We had an interesting discussion in class where we talked about the effects of climate change due to the pandemic. In our local area we noticed lakes and streams were clearer, the air felt clearer. It was a beautiful sight and it makes me nervous to think now that restrictions are easing we are going to be going back to how we were...pollution on the up!!

    I think it is important now more than ever to be ensuring that litter goes in bins, NOT rivers and streams and walk to places where we can to reduce air pollution.

      It's great to hear different experiences from where you live. Can you see any similarities between what you've experienced and what some students in different countries have?

        Indeed, there is a similarity between what (centered flower) mentioned in his country and what happened to us here in Palestine, as climate change and the environment were greatly affected by the advent of the Corona pandemic, whether positively or negatively.
        We noticed that the rivers became more pure, the harmful emissions from cars and factories decreased, and wildlife flourished in Palestine, as the percentage of wild thyme, iris, and acupus plants increased after they were threatened with extinction, as well as wild deer and partridges, their rate increased in Palestine.
        All this led to a prosperous environment and reduced climate change
        But after the measures were eased, the alarm began to ring and alarming indicators began to rise. Unfortunately, we gradually return to what we were previously, and this is what happened often in most countries of the world.

    I think climate change has had a small affect during covid as many countries have stopped production and that reduces co2 emissions this is the same story for travel that was banned in the first lockdown, reducing co2 emissions and noise pollution and re-usable masks were used all around the world and in venice beaches and the canals seperating the city were clean to the point the water was clear. this also affected wild animals everywhere as plastic pollution could'nt be found as everyone was in lockdown. all the information has been found during interesting class disscussions and I feel like pollution will rise as lockdown ease's.

    Covid 19 has had a positive affect on climate change because all across the world we have seen amazing transformations. E.g. The canal in Italy was clear for the first time in 60 years, lions have been laying in the middle of the road because there is no traffic and you can finally see the tops of mountains!

    In covid 19 less people went outside and drove around. This reduced air pollution! Not many people went out, this reduced litter pollution. It saved unnecessary deaths (mostly animals) and our rivers, streams and lakes became clear for the first time in years.

    I think that the pandemic has, overall, had a negative impact; it has killed millions, caused unemployment to increase massively, and that's just the start. However, saying that, it is clear that there have been some positives to come out of this. To begin, we have been able to physically see the horrifying impacts we have brought upon our planet. I think that for many, it has been a massive eye-opener into just how badly our planet has been suffering due to our selfish actions. Moreover, it has highlighted that if an issue is important, and substantial enough, then people can completely change their entire lifestyles almost instantly. And so, we are left to wonder why this hasn't happened when it comes to climate change. Global warming is debatably just-as, if not more, of a concerning issue as COVID-19, making us ask why these urgent changes haven't been made already. Due to the virus, we have been able to see, that together, making changes, even small ones, makes such a significant difference. Our planet is dying, and we're to blame. We need to act now.

    I think if climate change made things very cold then it would slow down Covid but really nothing would stop a virus and climate change is very bad

    Due to the Covid-19,climate change and air pollutions improved quite a lot in a great extent of countries.Airlines were decreased and that means that less gas are used.
