As coronavirus infects more and more people globally, the question becomes why now? Why has the pandemic began now? Could it be that increasing levels of climate change and continued destruction of the environment are to blame?
While COVID-19 is devastating, it is not caused by environmental destruction.
The Plague, Spanish influenza... Pandemics have happened periodically throughout history.
The wildlife trade caused the pandemic
The trading of illegal wildlife is worth over a billion dollars. It was this that caused the pandemic, not the destruction of the environment.
If it weren't for the things humankind is doing to devastate the environment, the coronavirus outbreak wouldn't have happened.
Eating meat, something that is extremely negative for the environment, caused the coronavirus outbreak.
Destruction of the environment
By not taking care of the planet, we are not taking care of ourselves.
