So let’s talk about this new author on climate policy. For in a new interview with C.M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld. Dr. Roland Kupers, author of A Climate Policy Revolution (Harvard University Press), discusses the ways the pandemic helped the Climate Crisis.
In addition, global economic growth is driven by consumer consumption. However, and unfortunately, consumption is a culprit. For it’s also polluting our planet.
Therefore to tackle the climate crisis, we need cleaner energy. However, we also need different social norms. During COVID19, the world was able to see. All the impact a lockdown can have on our environment. People were forced to give up their cars and coal. I also mean their entire ways of life.
So research shows carbon monoxide levels were reduced. That’s by nearly 50% compared to levels in the same period last year. Emissions of the planet-heating gas CO2 also fell sharply.
Roland Kupers is an advisor on Complexity, Resilience, and Energy Transition and the author of A Climate Policy Revolution – What the Science of Complexity Reveals about Saving Our Planet. Kupers shared with C.M. Rubin, Founder of CMRubinWorld, 10 ways the pandemic helped to fight the climate crisis. “From psychology, we know that it takes 3 – 6 weeks for new tastes to remain. Our new pandemic habits of less travel, video meetings, and valuing cleaner air just might stick,” says Kupers.
