People are somehow getting used to the news about Corona. This means that the climate emergency is again receiving attention. In the Arctic Circle temperatures are exceeding 40 degrees Celsius. This indicates how much the soil of what once was permafrost is heating up. The good news is that many citizens, communities and governments are more open to ‘green deals’ to both recover from the economic impact of Corona as well as to build a better future. ‘If not now then never’ is the urgent mantra for today and tomorrow.
