I had some pictures and video saved - basically screen caps of google earth from the time of around 2010-2012 and it showed what looked like a biblical flood in the Amazon, and the devestation left behind afterwards. Much of the area surrounding the river was red, maybe from mud? The images showed the river at 40-60 miles wide over lengths 300-500 miles long. I had 2 hard drives crash while I was backing one up & both were taken out somehow and I lost these pics/videos.. So that is why I'm trying to figure out where older sat images might be available.

I remember looking at the map and also trying to find anything on the flooding in Brazil but there wasn't a word of it mentioned online, but the satellite imagery was up for over a year of the same devastation in the Amazon, possibly for 2 years before it was updated. IDK the exact days the images were taken, Google earth doesn't allow you to see that info like they used to as they are much more manipulative than they used to be where you could search all their images, scroll through images going back 40+ years, where now you are stuck with the newest.

Shouldn't all these satellite imagery be freely available to the tax payers? Wasn't it our tax $$ that developed the rockets to launch the satellites and also develop the satellites as well as maintain them? I don't want to hear the BS about hosing costs for images either, that certainly isn't a billion $ + per year...

Try adding the word 'deforestation' to your search criteria.

I imagine the flooding you are speaking of may be an annual event due to the heavy snow falls on the Mountain regions.

Depends. There are private satellites and launch vehicles. Lots of them.

Since you used Google Earth, you might notice that the source of the imagery is provided. Some of it is "public" and a lot of it (especially the higher resolution stuff) is not. Google buys the stuff that is not. And, in fact, a lot of it isn't satellite imagery at all.

Timeline feature in Google Earth works for me.

Good example of aerial (not satellite) imagery, copyrighted.
Not paid for by our taxes.

Not really sure what that means. Just pointing out that you have provided examples of both public (USGS) and private (copyrighted) imagery, as I mentioned exist in my first post.

But you have quite effectively destroyed the OP's complaint.

Consider too much Roundup building up in the atmosphere ? 😧

Roundup is not a gas.

Most of the Amazon deforestation has to do with cattle ranching.

Your meaning is unclear.

Perhaps you could elaborate?

Carbon Credit Scheme goes bad

Why Carbon Credits For Forest Preservation May Be Worse Than Nothing

Your source.

The scientists and forest experts I spoke with put it this way: If the Amazon loses enough trees, it will reach a tipping point, transforming from lush ecosystem into a semiarid savanna. The implications would be global. And rich nations aren’t generous enough to fund the preservation of tropical forests without getting something in return.


Good point.

why is it - that some of the most vocal anti science wingnuts - are the least scientifically literate ?
