Thanks Chris!

How could anyone not be thrilled to see fish, dolphins, etc!

I've wondered about the effects of all this world-slowdown; according to a few studies, overall nitrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide emissions have decreased by at least 25%. Skies in parts of China (the world’s biggest polluter) have gone back to almost blue, apparently.

Of course, it is speculated that we will have a “revenge pollution” episode afterward, in a kind of making-up-for-lost-time thing. But for now, the earth is showing it resilience and strength.
Maybe some folks will learn from this…

Air least for me as a self-employed illustrator, life hasn’t changed a lot; I basically live in self-quarantine anyway, and I’m sure this is true for many of us. I feel lucky to have work and can carry on, as usual…

Stay safe everyone and thanks Chris for the bright spot!

I am expecting that the air will be clearer because there are fewer cars on the road, and also that the airlines have curtailed flights significantly.  I remember hearing that the one day in our century that had the most sunlight reaching the earth's surface was--wait for it--September 12, 2001, because the airlines were grounded.
