Don't let them gaslight you (pun partially intended). More CO2 emissions still come from burning coal than from any other source. And as long as industries insist on burning coal for energy and other purposes, that will be the biggest thing humanity needs to collectively change. Not whether or not you personally decide to ride a bike to work.
Over 4 billion people are in lockdown right now, because of the pandemic. That's over half the population of Earth. In a way, this is a big experiment to see if we, as individuals, can make a significant difference to the CO2 levels in Earth's atmosphere.
Turns out, not really. CO2 emissions fell by up to 20% over the past month, but the real problem is systemic. It's industries and corporations who need to make the changes which will make any real difference.
