Mother nature meme: truth or fiction

Alexander Alexeenko - 24.04.20

During the quarantine, the air in the cities was so purified that open spaces became visible that were previously lost in the haze from air pollution. However, as climatologists warn, in order for the situation to have a beneficial effect on climate warming, it is necessary to adhere to the same trends for another 10 years, reports France 2. It paved the way for appearance mother nature meme.


1. Starting mother nature meme

In mid-March, reports and mother nature meme began to spread on Twitter about the positive effect of the pandemic, namely the purification of nature due to the minimal activity of people forced to stay at home. The most famous tweets said the return of swans and dolphins to Venice.

Here’s an unexpected side effect of the pandemic — the water’s flowing through the canals of Venice is clear for the first time in forever. The fish are visible, the swans returned.

Venice hasn’t seen clear canal water in a very long time. Dolphins showing up too. Nature just hit the reset button on us. — says one of popular mother nature meme.

It sounds great, but actually it’s a fake: photos with dolphins were taken in Sardinia, and swans were captured in the Venetian quarter of Burano, where they were before the pandemic. The only thing worth believing is the purification of the water in the canals due to the lack of boats. Such publications became the basis of a new mother nature meme about the purification of nature and the events arising from this.

2. Essence of mother nature meme

Pure landscapes and views open up for the world, about which they have already sometimes been forgotten due to pollution, both in Asia and in Europe. In Greece, the Acropolis of Athens rises against the backdrop of the sea. This depth of field was often unavailable on days when the air was polluted, so, mother nature meme is partly true.

The “Gateway of India” in New Delhi, the Indian Arc de Triomphe, has never stood out like that in the clear blue sky. The same with the presidential palace, which is located in the city, which is usually considered one of the most polluted in the world: its shape returns to it. In this region, mother nature meme appears particularly clearly.


More than 4 billion people are in quarantine, and emissions into the environment over the course of a few weeks have decreased as much as it rarely happened, some experts say.

Even the Himalayan mountains have been visible for several days from the Indian plains. This has not been thirty years. However, what remains of this purity after quarantine? Will it be short-term? In order to have an effect, in particular, on climate warming, it is necessary to maintain this decrease in activity for many years, climatologists believe.
