Wow, this makes us even more celebratory on the 4th (and thanks to Ann Marie for a great post). Knowledge, as you know, is power. Collecting scientific data on carbon sources and density of carbon around the world will lead to a new chapter of understanding and possible reduction in those levels. Praise NASA for a great mission and leap in technology.
Honestly, we try to stay out of the argument over global warming and related climate change. We think sustainability is just good business and why do things more efficiently and smarter. But, for those who get hung up on the realty of these alleged changes to our planet, this satellite insight will offer tangible data.
In the meantime, enjoy the holiday, we hope this is a celebration of building the world into a smarter planet:
