Climate change. Over the past 12 months NASA has added five missions to its orbiting Earth-observing fleet – the biggest one-year increase in more than a decade. NASA scientists will discuss early observations from the new missions and their current status during a media teleconference at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Feb. 26.

Climate Change. New views of global carbon dioxide, rain and snowfall, ocean winds, and aerosol particles in the atmosphere will be presented during the briefing.

The first of the five new missions – the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) core observatory – was launched from Japan one year ago on Feb. 27, 2014. The most recent – the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission – was launched from California on Jan. 31 and is in its checkout phase before starting to collect data. Two missions are collecting NASA’s first ongoing Earth observations from the International Space Station (ISS).

    After 34 years of not enough climate action you “believers” are allowed to tell kids it’s “proven” they are doomed but science isn’t “allowed” to say the word; “proven”? That’s why it’s called; “belief” maybe?
    Who’s the neocon now?

    Libs; this was your Iraq War.
