This very impressive comparison was created using the DMSP satellites images; we can clearly see the increasing intensity of lights from cities and along the roads in Europe:


This animation is made up of two images of Europe at night showing lights from sources in cities and along roads in 1992 and 2010. Bright areas highly correlate with high population density – such as the densely populated cities like London, Paris and Rome. Coastal areas are also more populated than inland regions, making the outline of Europe clearly visible in these night images.

The images were acquired by the United States’ DMSP satellites. The DMSP satellites are run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, monitoring the meteorological, oceanographic and solar–terrestrial physics environments for the US Department of Defense. Data from DMSP’s Operational Linescan System can be used to see city lights.

By indicating population and economic growth, bright spots on these images also represent areas of high energy consumption, emissions and pollution – factors that greatly contribute to climate change.

I don't mind saying that your threads are coming to be some I look forward to finding when I log in each day. I always enjoy the new perspective and flat out wonder you manage to bring with your material.

Whoa.

That's kind of pretty, in a scary kind of way.


Why is the Nile so lit up??

Cool pics... but to think that we humans are capable of changing the climate of an entire planet, especially in such a short amount of time, is not only arrogant, but it is absurd.

That's actually quite scary.

Imagine what it'll be like in 20 years. Will there be any countryside left?

Yeah, so can this one:

The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science

I know the Global Warming Kool Aid tastes good, but don't swallow it until you've read this.

Thank you everyone!


I just created another one using China as a reference point with the ndgc.nooa datas. The progression year by year can be seen on this site as well.



I'm currently working on a USA map as well... Stay tuned!!

Yeah, seen that a thousend times now, and i really don't care if they have faked the story about global warming, the last 10 years the weather around me has changed to something crazy, i follow that story, it tells it much better than any scientist.
And i will bet you didn't read the document...

A document created by someone or a group of people with an established bias beforehand is of no interest to me. The Earth is more than capable of handling us humans... she has been through far worse.

Congratulations... and thank you for thanking me. To me this argument has become old and redundant, and if you've read one document from the church of climatology you've read them all.

Look at North Korea.

They're so energy efficient!

hahahahahahahahaha


As to the Global warming issue. The numbers are milked and the science isn't there. I don't mean it's not happening, but what I do mean is that it is something beyond our wee control.

It seems to be a cycle of sorts. Maybe we are still coming out of the Ice age? Maybe this part of space has ambient radiation, like an energy cloud we may be going through? Maybe the 5th sun is on the horizon?

who knows? The whole humans are evil thing is so old, and it's meant to keep you down, where you belong. Go back to sleep.
