You don’t have to go to Lima to see images from NASA’s mesmerizing hyperwall

The US Center at COP-20 doesn’t have any policy people available to talk to about the negotiations.  Smart.  They focus on more innocuous faces of the US — specific projects funded in developing countries, and science.  The space is dominated by the “Hyperwall” with panels of plasma screens showing phenomenon on earth from satellites.  There are over 100 topics (svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/hw).  Below are a few suggestions.  Check them out!

Watching the Earth Breathe (see summer vegetation suck up CO2)  svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?3947

Annual Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Extents  (like an ice cube: melts slow, then fast) svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?4004

Sea surface Height Anomalies (dynamic, but a temporary inundation is all it takes)  svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/goto?30502

About Dr. Lisa Marten

I love my children, I love the ocean and the mountains, and I don't feel reducing my carbon footprint is enough anymore. I fear the things I love are at risk and I am doing all I can to learn more about how to stop that and to bring others along for the ride with me.
