Our planet has changed a lot in the past 30 years. Images released by NASA are the evidence of this change. The agency has long been using satellite-based imagery and temperature data to study climate change and has built up quite the repertoire of compelling visual evidence. The images show incredible changes to our planet’s landscapes, from flooding rivers to vanishing lakes, shrinking sea ice to newly created islands. We can even see the dramatic effects of urban expansion and what light pollution looks like from space. As NASA explains: “Our planet is constantly changing, and we use the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of Earth , improve lives, and safeguard our future.”

California released new measures to fight climate change within minutes of Donald Trump being sworn in as U.S. president Friday, signaling the state’s commitment to be the nation’s environmental steward under an administration that has questioned the reality of global warming. California officials said it was a coincidence that the plan was released 37 minutes after the inauguration. The state outlined how it would achieve its goal of cutting output of heat-trapping greenhouse gases to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The plan drew battle lines for an expected clash with Trump over climate change, including a fight over the state’s decades-old authority to set emissions limits that are far stricter than those in many other parts of the United States.

Gabbard concluded: The CIA has long been supporting a group called Fursan al Haqq, providing them with salaries, weapons and support, including surface to air missiles.
