Research, published today in Nature Climate Change, found that emissions drops during COVID-19 could soon be undone, as unchecked economic recovery would see global emissions bounce back to pre-pandemic levels.

The Global Carbon Budget, released today, has found that global fossil CO2 emissions in 2020 are expected to decline by approximately 7% in 2020.
COVID-19 has affected global emissions in six economic sectors, with a significant decline in daily global emissions. Total daily emissions in early April were similar to those observed in 2006.
