Harare, Zimbabwe – Some environmentalists have attributed the current global sanitary status to the various global lockdown regulations that are currently in place.
To date, this has seen a significant reduction in carbon emissions and litter which affects much of the global environment.
Animals and plants in the marine and wild have significantly benefited from the low carbon emissions and litter.
“Greenhouse effects cause things like desertification which leads to poverty and hunger especially for countries that rely on Agriculture as the backbone of their economy like most countries in Africa.
So the various global lockdown regulations have done more good in terms of the reduction of pollution through chlorofluorocarbons thereby giving the ozone layer time to heal.
Some scientists actually argue that if the situation of these various lockdown regulations remains till 2030, there might be a full restoration of the ozone layer,” said Tafadzwa Machamire, an environmentalist.
Lawrence Mashungu, a climate scientist, also acknowledged the role of the various global lockdown regulations in mitigating climate change.
“In terms of carbon emissions there has been reduced economic activities which drive the emissions largely in industries and of course the transport sector.
Moreso, Zimbabwe recently launched the National Renewable Energy and the Biofuels Policy which is a good gesture pointing to the future powered by Renewable Energy.
In addition to that, the government has also developed the Low Emission Development Strategy pointing to the green future,” said the climate scientist.
