Falling traffic and dirty energy in the pandemic cut greenhouse gases below the 1990 level
The pandemic, beyond the health crisis, has left a clear climate lesson: greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Spain fell in 2020 to the lowest level in 30 years. How? Fewer fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel or gas were used to move around by car or generate electricity largely because of anti-covid restrictions. Spain released 271.5 million tons of GHG, less than in 1990, according to the Progress of the Emissions Inventory of the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
