Your basement is a valuable part of your home. It can serve as a storage area, an entertainment space, or even your kids’ playtime paradise. However, there are a few dangers, such as mold and pests, that make your basement uninhabitable. These dangers affect your home’s structure, to be sure, but they can also put your family’s health at risk. Although they may seem like minor annoyances, any basement sealing company will tell you that ignoring the problem will only make things worse. Our team has addressed some basement dangers before, but in this particular blog post, we wanted to expand on these.
Can Coronavirus Affect the Weather?
We have seen a lot on the news lately how the Quarantine around the world has affected local phenomenon. China’s smog clouds have mostly dissipated. Dolphins have returned to the canals in Italy. CO2 production was stifled, and we can now see just how large of an effect we as humans have on our environment.
It is a sort of “what happens when humans are gone” episode on the History Channel. Will this also affect the weather? CO2 emissions down, fewer pollutants into the water and air, noise and air pollution are lessened and we can see the stars with fewer planes interrupting the view. But how does, and can, it effect the weather?
Look for the Patterns
Weather in and of itself is hard enough to predict, even a day out, as it is. Remember the 8” rain in July a few years ago? The day before the weather channel said it was going to be Sunny, no clouds, and 80 degrees. A bit off the mark.
And now? The Farmer’s Almanac hasn’t been accurate for YEARS, with high suspicion that the formula created in the 1800’s does not account for Climate Change or any other man made factors. I think we can be sure in a guess that it also did not account for a Global Pandemic that would halt production and movement around the globe for months. Surely, this has to have had an effect on the weather.
Of Course it Did. And Don’t Call Me Shirley.
Look, we can’t definitively say HOW this has affected the weather. But we can say that is HAS affected the weather. Weather is caused by a change in temperature. If we had the same temps all around the globe, not much would happen in the way of storms. The changing pressure systems, humidity, and temperature causes all of these crazy storms. Everything goes into it.
So how couldn’t this affect our weather?
- Smog lifted
- Waters being cleansed
- Fewer drills drilling
- Fewer planes flying
- CO2 emissions are down
All of these have a definite effect on our environment, but it may be years before we fully understand just how much this has affected us. Historical data will show, and we for one, are very interested to see.
