Join Dr. Peter Carter, Paul Beckwith and Regina Valdez as they discuss the connections between the climate, ecological crises and the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics include attitudes about the climate emergency and the Covid-19 pandemic, the focus on economic growth, and the lack of a global, unified approach to fight both of these threats to human health. The importance of monitoring CO2 levels is a common element to both crises. Climate scientists have focused on measuring rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere, but CO2 concentrations should also be monitored indoors. Proper indoor ventilation can help lower the frequency of indoor coronavirus transmission.
