    While I agree that fighting climate change should be a top priority and probably no country is currently doing enough to get to net-zero CO2 fast enough, I don't think the comparisons to a crisis year like 2020 are all that helpful.

    Seeing the problems is important, but seeing successes is important as well in order to prevent everyone from loosing hope.
