Staying at Home Produces Earth Relief

With all the craziness that this pandemic I was wondering if the Earth felt some relief from our slowing down of our movements and get togethers.  It might be bigger than a donation.   I am pleased to share a number of countries and organizations are looking at this and the greenhouse emissions are down, the troublesome trash at the beaches are decreased, but recycling is down.    Some researchers are already concerned that we are rapidly going back to our old ways as businesses return and our care and attention to these issues disappear.   And it does show that we can make positive changes for us all.  For me, it’s encouraging.  Sometimes I think that we have made a huge mess for the next generations.   I want something to halt the direction that we are going.
