Despite the lessening of carbon footprint due to a halt of many activities during the pandemic, the climate crisis continues to accelerate at an unprecedented rate.

Wildfires break left and right in different parts of the globe. Stronger typhoons wreak havoc on the regions they pass through. Ice caps continue to melt, showing how the Earth is warming up at an alarming rate.
