Critical Commentary

The article comments on the changes in consumption that have been reported in the past weeks, mainly as the United States (and other Western Countries) have come to witness the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the article, the reporter mentions Energy peaks shifting hours and patterns and how the pandemic itself will later contribute to supply chains shifting back into the United States, preventing the effects that we are now witnessing during the current pandemic. Additionally, the article comments on the viability of big cities in terms of infection potential, energy use, and pollution.
