Today’s Solutions: September 29, 2023

After 21 days in lockdown to slow the spread of COVID-19, residents in Jalandhar, Punjab were rewarded with a view not seen in 30 years: the tops of the Himalayan Mountain range.

Reduced smog and pollution due to national shutdowns have revealed the tops of the mountains, which residents say haven’t been visible to the naked eye for 30 years. Many cities throughout India and the world have reported significantly reduced air pollution levels. The view of the glowing white peaks of the mountain is a testament to the pollution-free skies.

Residents in Cagliari, Italy have reported dolphin sightings, wild turkeys roam the streets of Northern California, and orcas are venturing further up into Vancouver’s Burrell Inlet. 

Amidst the uncertainty and grief of COVID-19, cleaner air and the resurgence of animal populations are offering an incredible silver lining to these strange times.
