Dramatic effect of coronavirus lockdowns seen from space

There's been a sharp drop in air pollution over China since the acceleration of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, and satellites can see it from space. 

That old “silver lining” observation certainly applies. The Black Death had a similar affect on Europe I understand; from watching Stephen Fry’s wonderful series , “QI”, (Quite Interesting), and the more recent explosion of a volcano in Iceland that halted airline traffic. The Earth shakes us off like a dog does fleas!

After you read the linked article and look at the photograph from space, watch this 4 minute video by Guy McPherson.

From your video, I agree with Guy McPherson that the numbers seem high. But McPherson has laid it out clearly that if industrial activity is reduced significantly it will reduce CO2 significantly but at the same time, will reduce aerosoles significantly which means the global dimming effect will be reduced significantly. As he has said, damned-if-you-do damned-if-you-don't. A great spot to be in if you are rooting 4 mass extinction of plant and animal an insect populations. The sad thing is that while humans deserve it given that humans have caused it, it's sad as a relates to the rest of life living on our Mother Earth.
