Rampant consumerism, some degradation of social norms, over exploitation  human resources, and the environment continue to play against. The Earth, and its  components mutate, adapt. There are enough signs to show that humans, and  all living beings, we are one more element that makes up this living organism. The  coronavirus could be understood as the result of the conduct of a technocratic world,  that has generated environmental problems for a long time such as the Greenhouse Effect,  Global Climate Warming, Deterioration of the Ozone Layer, to name a few. During  strict quarantine in 2020 there was a sharp decrease in contamination levels to  world level. The first values were seen in China, the United States and Italy when there  The strict isolation began with falls of between 20% and 30% of the emissions of Dioxide of  Nitrogen (NO2) in the air.

In urban centers hit hard by the coronavirus, such as Madrid, Milan, Rome,  Paris recorded a decrease of between 40% and 60% of this pollutant concentration.  In Argentina, through maps created by the Commission's Web Services GeoPortal  National Program for Space Activities (CONAE), the averages were analyzed three weeks prior  and the three after March 20, 2020. The results were surprising in cities  such as Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Rosario, Mendoza and San Miguel de Tucumán. The observations  Daily reports from the Sentinel-5p satellite show that Nitrogen Dioxide in the atmosphere of  urban centers was significantly reduced after mandatory isolation, up to 5 and 6 times  Lower.
