Mayewski talks with WVII about pandemic, cleaner air

Paul Mayewski told WVII that fewer toxic substances are being emitted into the atmosphere during the pandemic and that the air is cleaner. “The fact we can live with less [and] consume more local products is good for us. It’s good for the environment,” said the director of the Climate Change Institute. “The fact that the economy is impacted, of course, is very serious, but this is our opportunity to think about how we perhaps would like to deal with energy in the future.” For more information, visit the Climate Reanalyzer, a site that visualizes climate and weather datasets.
