Uitstoot CO2 zal nooit meer zo hoog zijn als in 2019, dankzij corona
De uitstoot van broeikasgas komt door de uitbraak van covid-19 dit jaar 8 procent lager uit dan vorig jaar. Maar het blijft niet bij dit ene jaar: die plotselinge teruggang in uitstoot zal niet gecompenseerd worden door latere stijgingen. Het jaar 2019, zo schrijft onderzoeksbureau DNV GL, zal de boeken in gaan als het jaar met de hoogste uitstoot van CO2 ooit.

CO2 emissions will never be as high as in 2019, thanks to corona

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, greenhouse gas emissions are 8 percent lower this year than last year. But it will not stop at this one year: that sudden decline in emissions will not be offset by subsequent increases. The year 2019, according to research agency DNV GL, will go down in the books as the year with the highest CO2 emissions ever.

Because renewables are just so much cheaper than fossil fuels!

The huge fires in Arctic Siberia would have added a shitload of CO2! Energy, cement making kept going, etc.
