The Coronavirus pandemic 1-2 years ago changed the way we lived! This changed how people drove their cars as well!
According to data, Californians in the south drove their cars far less during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the decrease in the car driving, there were low levels of carbon dioxide greenhouse emissions!
The discoveries might assist with controlling outflows and decreases policymaking in Southern California urban areas.
“We noticed CO2 decreases of around 60% in 2020 contrasted with 2019, showing that the progressions in rush hour gridlock definitely diminished non-renewable energy source emanations during the pandemic,” said Cindy Yañez, a Ph.D. understudy in the UCI Branch of Earth Framework Science and the lead creator of the AGU Advances concentrate on that subtleties the discoveries. “However, discharges bounced back to pre-pandemic levels by July 2021.”
This was amazing! Let’s hope that even though the pandemic is over, reducing the levels of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere continues!
