How bad is climate change and global warming? - Why can we not find .

How bad is climate change and global warming? - Why can we not find Osama bin Laden? - Does the world have enough fresh water? . This book is the natural successor to Pat Norris’s book on the origins of spy satellites: Spies in the Sky (Springer-Praxis, 2008), which told the story of the first military satellites to monitor the Earth.

This book was very interesting and very descriptive and detailed. Pat Norris has written this easy-to-read and fact-packed book, one that underscores the vital monitoring of our planet for a variety of purposes. I did learn some very amazing facts about the surveillance from outer space. I would like to thank the author Pat Norris and the co- authors for creating such a factual and descriptive book about what really happens above us. I learned alot about the survalliance of cameras and satellites. Furthermore, this book delves into the possible clash between public good and market forces, as well as future development of systems to deal with emerging needs.

Our planet is constantly monitored by hundreds of space-borne instruments. This book describes the technology of those instruments and the sciences that provide useful information from them. It also discusses the political implications of space-borne monitoring. From the moment satellites were launched into orbit their ability to see what was happening on a global scale was appreciated - and feared

An Air Force surveillance site on top of a Hawaiian volcano which identifies and tracks manmade objects orbiting the earth is discussed. The facilities and techniques used in the tracking are described, and the use of the site for testing lasers in the atmosphere is examined.

Our planet is constantly monitored by hundreds of space-borne instruments. This book describes the technology of those instruments and the sciences that provide useful information from them. It also discusses the political implications of space-borne monitoring. From the moment satellites were launched into orbit their ability to see what was happening on a global scale was appreciated ― and feared. This well researched book strives to answer such diverse questions as: Are satellites really a threat to individual privacy? How bad, really, is climate change and global warming? Why can’t we find Osama bin Laden? Does the world have enough fresh water? The military side of the story is linked to the big security issues that we face, such as terrorism and civil wars. The civilian side of the story involves numerous successful collaborations in weather forecasting, navigation, communications, and other such "peaceful" uses of satellite surveillance. How the world handles the knowledge gained from these Earth watchers will be critical in the years to come, and Norris skillfully leads us through the issues and possible paths we can take.
