Abstract: During the COVID-19 epidemic, global energy utilisation is reduced due to the depression of the global economy and the changed social behaviour. It is analysed that the energy pattern is affected by the social matters of the disease trend where the epidemic behaviour is significantly important to present the prospect. The energy consumption has been reduced following the depression of the national economy. The results show the pandemic related climate change effect as energy factor, infected model, and climate change effect with the reproductive number. The comparisons changing of the reproductive number is done. Table shows the list of new estimations for energy-related CO2 emissions following the modelling. There are three kinds of the reproductive numbers and these show the CO2 emissions. The general modelling in atmospheric behaviour can be improved in the reliability using the pandemic or chemical hazards, which can make the global warming. Hence, the extended variables in the analysis of the global warming enhance the analysis quality.
