Baiker, Jan R; Castro, Nadia; Muccione, Veruska; Huggel, Christian; Allen, Simon; Drenkhan, Fabian (2020). How the COVID-19 pandemic is teaching us to tackle the climate crisis. San Francisco (USA): PLOS (Public Library of Science) Collections.

Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our everyday life in an unprecedented way and has made us very conscious about the vulnerability of our modern society. It has demonstrated an increasingly critical need for systemic transformation, based on the principles of sustainability and resilience [1, 2]. As a “stress test” [3] this pandemic outbreak and ongoing crisis has already taught us several important lessons that should be considered for dealing with climate change, a fundamental challenge and risk to humanity for the 21st century and beyond.
