The world after the break: new paradigms or a reckless struggle to make money?
While most of the environment and the activists see the environment as the big winner of the pandemic of the new coronavirus, many, who are looking a bit further into the future, are already saying - the environment may end up being one of the biggest losers.
Due to developments in the new coronavirus in the throes of panic and panic, the world economy is adopting measures to save the economy and keep jobs.
Therefore, the central environmental issue is not what happens during an outbreak, but what will happen after it. Environmentalists and policymakers believe that the global recovery after the pandemic should be "green". That the world should learn from the fight against coronavirus the importance of working together when conditions are critical and then transfer that knowledge to the battlefield for a healthier planet.
But the first signals indicate that the opposite will happen. China, which has succeeded in stopping the domestic spread of the new coronavirus and is currently addressing the question of how to prevent a new outbreak from introducing the virus from other parts of the world, is re-energizing factories, and life will slowly return to old rails. Analysts say the Chinese government, already dissatisfied with the losses stemming from the trade war with the US, will invest a lot of money in the economy - even in "dirty" industries, which can mean a quick spike in activity.
Many believe that the scenario from 2009 will be repeated when China tackles major infrastructure projects in the fight against the global crisis, economic growth is at the forefront, and everything else becomes irrelevant. The result, however, was a major increase in pollution, which peaked in mid-winter 2012-2013, when cities were smogging smog and public pressure forced the regime to adopt an emission reduction plan.
