Carbon emissions fall 7% during COVID-19 lockdowns | Money Talks

UNEP's annual emissions gap report finds that lockdowns and other COVID-19 restrictions helped reduce global carbon dioxide emissions by 7-percent this year. For more on this, Anne Olhaff joined us from Copenhagen. She's head of strategy at the UN Environment Programme's office at the Technical University of Denmark. #CarbonFootprint #UnEmissionsGap #ClimateCrisis
