There is an upside to the global recession: greenhouse gas emissions are expected to fall with 3% this year. This would lead to emissions in 2020 being 5% lower. This contrasts to a 60 year history of an average 3% growth in emissions a year. While this may be good news for our climate, government budgets suffer as a result.
