Air pollution drops across Europe amid reduced traffic


Oct 29, 2006

So with all the conspiracy theories out there, who agrees that it was actually the climate change crew (I'm looking at you, Greta!) that spread this man-made virus out in the wild?

Air pollution rates across Europe have decreased due to reduced traffic, following strict travel restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus.

The European Environment Agency (EEA) has released data showing the drop in levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), a pollutant mainly emitted by road transport. This is particularly evident in cities under lockdown.

Over the last four weeks, Rome has seen average NO2 concentrations fall by 26-35 per cent compared to the same period in 2019.
