Kenneth W. Welch Jr. hopes the positive wave of environmental effects per global COVID-19 response continues
“Nature recovers at record speeds” Kenneth W. Welch Jr., CEO, Sea Dog Systems, Inc.
WILLIS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, March 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — COVID-19 has incited change across the world these last few months. Entire cities have shut down, trains, air travel and other forms of transportation have all but nearly stopped, public spaces are shut down, concerts canceled, resorts closed.
In China, factories shut down, and streets were cleared to stop the spread of the virus. Life, as it was known, came to a halt—and the skies cleared. The average number of “good quality air days” increased 21.5 percent in February, compared to February 2019, according to China’s Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
Further, satellite images released by NASA and the European Space Agency showed dramatic reductions in nitrogen dioxide emissions—those released by vehicles, power plants, and industrial facilities—in major Chinese cities between January and February. The cloud of toxic gas once highly visible above industrial powerhouses nearly disappeared.
This positive environmental impact has not gone unnoticed by sustainable energy inventor and SeaDog Systems, Inc. CEO Kenneth W. Welch Jr., “It has become quite apparent that recovery of the planet by how we react can happen nearly overnight (relatively speaking), which also accentuates the small effect that we have had overall. If such effects can be reversed so quickly, this leads to a more optimistic view of how quickly alternative energy and different lifestyles can correct the disastrous effects of human endeavor on earth.”
Welch hopes to foster growing discussions about making the world a better place for our children’s children, starting with addressing new and healthier energy solutions.
As the world reacts, adapts, and learns from this global pandemic, communities may be forever changed – for the better. We have definitive proof of the direct effect our actions have upon our immediate environment. And perhaps now there will be greater incentive to switch to cleaner, and more sustainable energy sources. Time will tell.
