NASA scientists claims Decline in human carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

For the first time ever, NASA scientists claims the decrease in atmospheric Carbon dioxide (CO2) across the globe due to emissions from human activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.

They collect the data from NASA’s ‘Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite’ and ‘atmospheric modeling’. The global emissions decrease of 3 percent to 13 percent for the year 2020. When the Covid-19 pandemic forced people to stay home, there were fewer cars and other means of transport on the road, which meant steep drops in the number of greenhouse gases and pollutants released into the atmosphere.
