Using data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA’s Terra satellite, scientists and data visualizers stitched together a full year’s worth of monthly observations of the land surface, coastal oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, photo-like mosaic of every square kilometer (.386 square mile) of our planet.

The Earth’s wild places are providers and protectors of resources essential to life on this planet, but humans are degrading and destroying these havens on an unprecedented scale. The fight to protect these last wild places and secure the future of life on our planet is unfolding now. The National Geographic Society is teaming up with the Wyss Campaign for Nature to address our current conservation crisis. Our goal: Protect 30% of the planet in its natural state by 2030.

Travelling by plane has never been more popular, with four billion passengers flying every year. But aviation emissions contribute to climate change, and scientists say we need to do more to tackle the problem. BBC research has found that only a tiny fraction of passengers travelling with the world’s biggest airlines are choosing to offset their carbon footprints. Carbon offset schemes involve paying extra in order to contribute to environmental projects that reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, though some say it’s just an excuse to continue polluting.

Governments worldwide have committed to a target of reducing Carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. European countries are aiming to go further and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. But the actions governments are collectively taking don’t look like they will be enough to meet their own targets.

Not all carbon is created equal. Writer Jackson Carpenter argues that the power to stop climate change rests on recognizing different kinds of carbon – a shift in perspective that allows us to change the world without changing our lifestyles. Jackson Carpenter has ten years’ experience working on solutions to climate change and the development of alternative fuels.
