What about the area of this specialty in 2019?
Throughout 2019, the year continues to see more disastrous effects from climate change, and governments are under more pressure to curb CO2 emissions than ever before. After the United States pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords, other countries are trying to continue their pledge of slowly moving away from fossil fuels, and to one day have 100% of all energy come from renewable resources in the coming years. Environmental conservation has also been on the rise in many countries, and in places like South Africa and South Korea, they are trying to combat air pollution by increasing the number of trees and conservation zones. Companies are attempting to find new ways of lower CO2 levels out of the air itself, and combatting illegal, overfishing which has become a hot topic as well. Pollution remains a huge problem in many places, and a growing number of countries are beginning to pass laws that are aimed at helping the environment.
