No it doesn’t. World leaders came together and inflicted an emergency shutdown on the economy because the viral pandemic was a real crisis. Despite all of last year’s posturing about the phony “climate emergency” they were clearly not willing to inflict comparable economic harm, nor would it have been justified. Environmentalists who have spent years demanding a radical shutdown of global economic activity in the name of fighting climate change can barely conceal their excitement that it’s happening, albeit for other reasons. But they are doomed to disappointment. This shutdown is only temporary until the pandemic eases. After that everyone is going to want the economy to fire back up as quickly as possible.
