It isn't as bad as you think. Or maybe it is.

Another week has passed and we're back with the climate updates! This is "Let's balance out" and you'll read one good news and one bad news about the climate crisis. Shall we begin?

So what do you want first? The good news or the bad news?

We know that plastic has made a great comeback this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Here's plastic coming back in his natural habitat in pictures, by The Guardian.

Apparently the US is going to join other powers like China, India and the EU to plan a global green recovery from the crisis. This is going to be only major international summit on the climate emergency this year.

"If they fail to do so in the next few months, the economic recovery from the Covid-19 crisis risks locking in high carbon emissions that would lead to climate catastrophe"
