FutureTales Lab Forecasts Environmental Impact of COVID-19 in Techsauce Podcast

5 June 2020, Bangkok – Dr. Pannin Sumanasrethakul, Foresight Research Director of FutureTales Lab, spoke on the environmental impact of COVID-19 in a Techsauce podcast. 

After a short-lived environmental improvement, the world will encounter an impact from the crisis, she said. 

Environmental changes will occur from many factors. Past data shows that global energy use will soar once the epidemic is over. After the crisis, the environment will likely suffer more and more from energy consumption. 

People kept at home by the lockdown have sparked a surge in plastic waste that Thailand will struggle to manage. Ocean plastic, in particular, will climb. 
 
In addition, flooding is likely between August and October, which could cause a second wave of infection to spread in contaminated water for several weeks.
