To the Editor:
Have you noticed the stunning green of the grass and the eye-popping blue of the sky lately? Despite the dreadful human suffering in the world right now, nature is putting on a show and outdoing herself this spring. Some say it is happening because there is less pollution due to reduced human travel and activity.
It is likely that we are seeing what our world would look like without the usual smog that degrades our environment and its climate. Does this not indicate that we can actually affect the health of our planet by altering our actions?
While we must focus on defeating the coronavirus right now, we cannot ignore that climate change is also breathing down our necks. We need to sharpen our eyes to see what we may be headed for in the future so we can tackle climate change as vehemently as we are attacking the coronavirus crisis now.
