The debate that I am writing about is does COVID-19 has a positive or negative impact on climate change?

The Debate in this Topic is on While COVID-19 appears to be good for climate change in the short term, the reality is that if we leave it alone, the environment will be polluted more by COVID-19 in the future.

In this debate, I argue COVID-19 is inherently unhelpful to the climate problem and even exacerbates the planet’s climate change. What we need to do at this particular time is to push for certain policies.

My position is important because it helps us know that now is an important time for people to reflect on their actions and then help the future of society.
