Wyoming Coal Mining

Explore a global timelapse of our planet, constructed from Landsat satellite imagery. Watch as mines spread across the surface of Wyoming. Each frame of the timelapse map is constructed from a year of Landsat satellite data, constituting an annual 1.7-terapixel snapshot of the Earth at 30-meter resolution. The Landsat program, managed by the USGS, has been acquiring images of the Earth's surface since 1972. Landsat provides critical scientific information about our changing planet.

This is about bees (they are dying off, with potentially catastrophic consequences for agriculture and humanity's food supply), but the pesticide companies reaction to it illustrates the same kind of destructive corporate greed that the coal companies and operators of coal fired power plants display in the Global Warming issue.

Good point!, we have these litmus tests going on all over the world right now and no one can find definitive answers as to why.

The ONE big thing we could change and DONT is Man's interaction with the environment as a principle cause. It's a sad reflection on what advances have been made since civilisation has began. We change the things that have no impact on Economic infrastructure but as soon as something threatens a dramatic change to that Economic model we fight tooth n nail not to do it regardless of the consequences. It took 40 yrs fighting tobacco lobbying to have smoking banned in public places and advertising. What did they do in response, built a market in undeveloped countries where they have kids as young as 5 smoking in Asia. That's the morality of big business when looking after your welfare without government interference. We did exactly the same thing with manufacturing with business citing too much government control to be profitable so exported a polluting problem off shore. But in reality it was taking advantage of cheap Labor with little to no rules. How is that working out for the planet at the moment.

Correction: industrialization is not civilization. Vice versa, too.

Amazon Deforestation, Brazil

Explore a global timelapse of our planet, constructed from Landsat satellite imagery. The Amazon rainforest is shrinking at a rapid rate to provide land for farming and raising cattle. Each frame of the timelapse map is constructed from a year of Landsat satellite data, constituting an annual 1.7-terapixel snapshot of the Earth at 30-meter resolution. The Landsat program, managed by the USGS, has been acquiring images of the Earth's surface since 1972. Landsat provides critical scientific information about our changing planet.

So as long as it's only you remaining believers doing the lying..........climate blame is dead and real planet lovers are happy not mad a crisis was avoided. You just hate yourself and all of humanity.
Sadly, I think you're correct in this assessment. I wish it weren't so....but it probably is the case. What else could rational people conclude?

Tell us about Jasper County, Mississippi, named after a hero of the Revolutionary War.

Are you including the people from Jasper County, Texas, Iowa, South Carolina, Missouri, Georgia, and Indiana as well?

That would be "cretins", not "cretensthatidontknowhowt ospell".

Been doing your research? Did you triangulate (no, you can't even pronounce that, much less know what it means or how to do it)? Are you stalking me?

Assumptions make an ass of you and mememine69ing himself. I am not from Jasper County, MS.

Whats wrong with conservatives these days, that as soon as Environment is involved they feel they have to go in the opposite direction. Because anyone who might have an issue with Environmental policies must be a liberal. What a bunch of crap.

There was a woman who use to post on here who was a die hard Republican and any time she mentioned Environmental policies she got branded a Liberal. This how f...d up the Republican party has become, from the tea party brigade to Glen Becks of this world forming such a narrow view of the world and can't budge from it.
