Lockdown may lead to biggest CO2 emission fall since World War II


Experts expect that lockdown may lead to biggest CO2 emission fall since the world war 2 this year as the Coronavirus outbreak brings a virtual stand still, according to the team of scientists providing benchmark emissions data .

According to Rob Jackson who chairs the Global Carbon Project and a professor of Earth system science at Stanford University , Carbon output could fall by over 5% year on year – the first dip science since a 1.4% reduction after 2008.

He also said I wouldn’t be shocked to see a 5% or more drop in CO2 emission this year , something not witnessed after the World War II.
