Corona Virus Pandemic: A Possible Antidote to Climate Change Crisis

Kankana Debnath

Abstract: As of today the world is threatened by two crises. One is the corona virus pandemic which is an abrupt and sudden threat that gripped the world within a matter of months and other is climate change, a doom which is destroying the earth like slow poison. There has been much uproar in the last decade against the rise of global greenhouse gasses and other anthropogenic activities which has led the world to a tipping point. National, regional and global organisations are engaged in formulating schemes and mechanisms to fight global warming but there has been no such satisfactory action taken as such. But the so called forced lockdown that was imposed by the world governments to contain the outbreak of the pandemic drastically brought down the emission levels due to the diminished human activities. The paper seeks to understand this cause and effect situation between the pandemic and climate change and further establish the fact that like the pandemic crisis global warming too needs similar action in order to save an untimely demise of this planet.
