這轉變看似有利紓緩全球暖化,實情如何?下一篇文章將探討在全球停擺之下,近期温室氣體排放量的改變。

And her painting titled “Heartbreak Weather – Inertia in the Face of Wildfires” depicting wildfires of Australia was selected in the Niall Horan international art competition.

“Breathe Life” includes paintings of trees, gardens which are efficient carbon sinks – that alleviate CO2 pollution which creates health effects and global warming. It also includes portraits of artist Renan Kaleli (Pollution 1); the creator of 5G technology which is important to the digital economy Prof Erdal Arikan (Pollution 2); the composer and singer of “Heart Break Weather” Niall Horan (Heartbreak Weather – Inertia in the Face of Wildfires); an innocent child who deserves to inherit clean air and blue skies Can Kir (Wildlife).
