“We are 1% higher than 19th century temperatures, yet in Europe it is 2% and cover the Arctic its 3%, which accounts for the fact that 8,500 tonnes of ice a sec is melting from Greenland.
“We face a catastrophe in our lives and in our children’s lives, so its fantastic that we have this opportunity to join the dots between Coronavirus and air pollution.”
