An article and video put out by the World Economic Forum talks about all the "benefits" of the lockdown measures enacted all over the world, and how they have "improved" cities.
"Lockdowns are quietly improving cities around the world," says the tweet, unironically.
Scientist Frederick Massin claims that the massive drop in ambient noise levels all over the planet (sometimes by as much as 50 percent) meant that his team had opportunities to study seismic activity on a very small scale.
"This was an unprecedented opportunity. There’s no way we would normally be able to do this kind of experiment," commented Massin.
John Clinton, a seismologist, also commented:
"The weeks during lockdown were the quietest period we have on record. With human noise always increasing, it is highly likely that it was the quietest period for a very long time."
Aside from the boon to the field of seismology, the WEF noted that "there were also record falls in air pollution, claring skies from Asia to America, but by late 2020 it had returned to pre-pandemic levels," and that "the drop won't slow climate change unless we look at emissions cuts."
For some, the video would appear to echo sentiments of those calling for a "great reset", which could mean many possible things to many people, but generally has to do with people wanting an end to capitalism.
In the below video, the hosts are talking about how Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went on record as saying he favoured the "great reset":
Also questioned strongly by critics is the idea that cities are improved, considering other facets to the issue such as declining mental health on a global level and the alarming spike in suicides, also world-wide.
