The weather and Covid-19

Extreme Weather Featured Image 7

With many people working and studing from home,there are fewer cars on the road. Cars create pollution by emitting carbon dioxide,a greenhouse gas that climate science has shown is the magor cause of extreme weather. Pollution from cars also creates ozone in the lower levels of the atmosphere that can cause problems for people with respiratory diseases like ashma. When everyone is able to get back to their normal routine of work and school, we expect levels of the pollution to rise again in the upcoming months.

Do you think environmental pollution can be decreased in other to decrease extreme weather? If so , what measures do you think can be used?
