NASA Time-Lapse Video Shows Stunning Effects of Climate Change
The Earth is a living, breathing planet.
Climate change can be hard to recognize up-close, on a human scale — the storms, floods, and heat waves it causes can seem, on a year-to-year basis, like slightly more intense versions of past events.
If you zoom out, however, the effects of climate change become more apparent. That’s what NASA has been doing for decades now. Through its satellites, particularly the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS), the US space agency is able to track planetary-scale events over long periods of time.
