New Talking Point: Lockdown is Good Because It “Buys Time” to Fight Climate Change

Experts and politicians have been telling people that coronavirus is here to stay and that the lockdown and social distancing measures cannot be lifted without risking people’s lives.

As more and more people realize that coronavirus is pretty much as dangerous as the flu, and in fact is a virus that causes the disease known as the flu, it is becoming clear that there’s a backup talking point in which these authority figures can rely on.

The message is this: lockdowns are good for the planet, and they help fight against climate change, buying us precious time to save the future.

A news flood has already begun.

Last week the so-called “Black Science Man” did a show about how the lockdown can teach us how to fight against the weather.

On Thursday, on CNN’s New Day, Bill Weir claimed that the lockdown has “helped humanity” fight global warming, but also said that in order to actually save the weather, we’d have to do this for thirty years.

The idea that people living like prisoners in their own homes is giving the planet a chance to heal is going to be aggressively promoted going forward.

CBS News:

Amid all the hardships of the widespread coronavirus lockdowns this spring there has been one unintended but welcome consequence: less pollution, with cleaner skies and a drop in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In fact, 2020 may see the largest yearly global decline ever in emissions. A new report from Carbon Brief is projecting a whopping 5.5% reduction from 2019; the head of the World Meteorological Organization says it could reach 6%.

An emissions drop of that size is about on par with the kind of year-after-year decrease the globe would need to sustain to achieve the goal set in the Paris climate agreement of keeping the Earth’s warming from exceeding 2 degrees Celsius.

Market Watch:

India’s extended lockdown to curb the coronavirus outbreak has shut down schools, workplaces, industries, transport, and forced people to stay home.

It also led to an unexpected bonus in the country with six out of 10 of the world’s most polluted cities: cleaner air.

It is clear that climate change and environmentalism is often accompanied by self-hate.

Veganist Greta Thunberg sacrificed her puberty for the planet.

The idea is that humans were doing bad things to the planet, and that now that humans are not doing anything but staying in their homes, the planet is better off.

Chicago Tribune:

Our country is facing a serious problem: The environment seems to be getting cleaner and animals are prospering.

With much of the world sheltering in place during the coronavirus pandemic, so-called scientists have noticed a pronounced drop in air pollution. Various forms of wildlife have been spotted venturing into areas previously occupied by people.

This is, of course, an outrage. And it poses a direct threat to the sensible, long-standing conservative belief that environmentalists are stupid, climate change is a hoax and humans are in no way harming the planet.

Back in early March, Forbes was already pushing the idea that the lockdown will somehow heal the planet.


The lockdown may save more lives from pollution reduction than are threatened by the virus itself, said François Gemenne, director of The Hugo Observatory, which studies the interactions between environmental changes, human migration, and politics.

There are more examples. Too many to quote here.

Here’s a couple of older headlines:

  • CNN: There’s an unlikely beneficiary of coronavirus: the planet
  • NCB News: Coronavirus shutdowns have unintended climate benefits: cleaner air, clearer water

Ultimately, they are likely to go for a scenario where lockdowns are some kind of holiday where people spend months living like prisoners “to heal the planet” or “to keep people safe from viruses.” Or maybe both.

At least one celebrity has started to test the waters for that idea.

Sky News:

Idris Elba has said he thinks the world should take a week of quarantine every year to “remember this time” once the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

The star, who along with his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba has recovered after contracting coronavirus, said it had been a “scary” time.

On lockdown, he said: “I think that the world should take a week of quarantine every year just to remember this time. Remember each other. I really do.

“I think it’s… other species use it. It’s called hibernation. But it does remind you that the world doesn’t tick on your time.”

Powerful people are very interested in making this new way of living permanent for their own shadowy purposes.
