Our Impact on The Planet

Posted by Dan Satterfield


Dr. Jim White at INSTAAR at the Univ. of Colorado showed this video at the Glen Gerberg Weather and Climate Summit last week. The background is the DMSP city lights image and the video runs 24 hours showing air traffic across the globe. If someone tells you that we humans are too insignificant to affect the planet, then show them this video.

Claiming that we humans cannot impact this planet is nothing short of pure silliness. The science says otherwise, and it is indisputable.
