Reblog: Ripples of Hope

Do you think that the world will be better or worse after the Coronavirus?  Our air pollution has gotten much better.  Our increased use of plastic has created more plastic pollution in landfills and the ocean.  We are forced to address the inequities in our health systems and what it means to be essential.

  1. Nature is the big winner, because as a result of the quarantine, we have not been destroying it. The problem will be economic because the closure of many companies is causing the dismissal of thousands of workers around the world. Banks predict a very large resection this and next year. In short, we will see how far this pandemic takes us. The only certainty is that we have to take care of ourselves when going out.
