How about saving the planet immediately after we've defeated the coronavirus?


Recommended Posts

Isn’t it interesting to see how capitalism faced with the global coronavirus pandemic is currently asking socialism to save it from collapsing?  

And isn't it fascinating to see that the very same people who until just a few weeks ago said that there wasn’t enough money to invest in a green transition now have magically found trillions to prep up a crashing economy? 

And yes, sure, we must "save our economy" to avoid further despair and suffering – especially among the working class and the poorest and vulnerable people of our societies. 

But how about that after the coronavirus has been defeated, we immediately treat the climate crisis as the existential crisis it actually is, and we save the very prospects for future human existence on this planet?

As the pandemic is almost over, certain decisive steps must be taken for climate control. When the pandemic started there was total lock down in entire world, and due to this the environment thrived. So proper steps must be taken to curb this rising pollution like lock down in certain fields on regular basis to control the climate change. These lock down should not affect the economy also.

Every country must sit and create a plan for saving the planet.

Yes, but that's the hard part. We have waited so long to take proper climate action that ANY meaningful action we take now will have severe short-term economic effects.

The question is, when will the coronavirus will be over.
