Greatly reduced greenhouse emissions.

Sometimes you wonder if the world does things to protect itself, since we haven't been doing much about it.

Bad news, I bet plastic bags and other chemicals will be on the rise.

But yes, I do wonder how much of an impact this will be. Electric bills may go up though, and heating up north will add some greenhouse. I usually turn up my AC like 5-6 degrees above what we like it at night. Now, I'm only turning it up 3 degrees. Don't want to cook the kids, but they don't need it to be an ice box, either.
 
I was thinking the grounding of flights would help but according to vox.com, air travel only accounts for 2% a year

whew. Glad I didn’t grow up in your house. I can get hot all day long but I can’t sleep hot.

Same.

I'm only talking about day time, sun pounding hours. At night, I haven't changed a thing. Keep the house cold at night. I'm not an animal. Or a grandpa.
 
I think our farts are responsible for global warming. That's my current theory anyway.
 
I'm hoping this will be a major shift in our culture towards having almost EVERYONE working from home.

Just think how uncrowded the roads would be if everyone that was able to work from home actually did work from home.
