Pollution levels in China declined dramatically between January and February , according to latest maps released by United State’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).. According to the space agency, the decline was partially because of economic slowdown in the east Asian country following a novel coronavirus (COVID) outbreak. There’s a disturbingly familiar pattern with regard to mankind’s behaviour here on Earth and further afield.

The preservation of our water environment, which is embedded in sustainable development, must be well Cited by: 5.
