The environmental impact of COVID19

Subsequent to a global economic shutdown, the environmental impact of COVID19 drove positive results to ecological problems. With a two month shutdown, Mother Nature showcased how quick it can recover from contaminants at the beaches in California. An unexpected phenomenon known as Bioluminescence manifested itself and caused wave splashes to glow in fascinating electric blue colors. This spectacle of lights would have gone unnoticed in the polluted beaches by pulling the microbes that cause it beneath the surface of the water.

An economic halt drives positive enviornmental results.

Bioluminescence are common in other parts of the world, nontheless the rarity of them at one of the busiest coasts in America is indicative of how an economic halt drives positive results. Likewise the scientific community reported increased number in migratory wild life and a shift in carbon dioxide levels; Notably the main contributor of global warming .

Can mankind give the planet time to recover?

The solution to an ecological collapse

This raises an interesting question, can mankind give the planet time to recover on a regular basis? Is it practical to establishing a natural recovery season where global economies agree to month-long shut downs of pollutant businesses? A movement of that scale could reduce tons of planetary toxic trash, produce healthier levels of oxygen, and decrease global warming. But with world economies competing against one another the probability of that is unlikely. Still, the environmental impact seen during the COVID19 shutdown appears to be the solution to an ecological collapse.
