The recent global pandemic has provided an unparalleled opportunity to examine and potentially calibrate our responses to Global Warming. Since 1992 there has been much debate but also vast deployment of technology from satellites to atmospheric monitoring stations to study climate change and, specifically, global warming. Copious amounts of atmospheric temperature and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) data have been continuously recorded. Data throughout the 2019 pandemic to present, now provide the rare opportunity to test understanding of Global Warming and resulting Climate Change.

Herein, changes in temperature and Green House Gases with respect to the time, during which global activities shut down or were significantly decreased, are used to design a multi-faceted approach to further examine our understanding and actions relative to Global Warming. A combination of perturbation and sensitivity analysis are proposed to draw attention to short and long-term efforts that have the potential to help further understand and calibrate efforts to manage Global Warming. The primary focus is to utilize changes noted during the pandemic to inform calculations and global warming predictions and actions.
