No, it is essential that we learn the right lessons from the pandemic. Those of us who have been critical of the “climate emergency” movement have pointed out that the so-called climate crisis does not look like a real crisis, especially since human welfare has improved so dramatically over the past century. The pandemic has proven our point by showing us what a real crisis looks like. It has also shown us what a severe economic downturn looks like. Radical alarmists wave away the potential for harm from wrecking the economy. During boom times they can get away with that because people forget what a nightmare an economic collapse really is.
