Launching a rocket

Environmental Defense Fund has an ambitious new project: launching a new satellite. What?

Here’s the back story. In 1978, NASA’s Nimbus-7 satellite verified the hole in the ozone layer, and led to a great environmental success story. The same needs to be done for methane pollution, which is responsible for a quarter of climate change emissions, by some estimates. But those are estimates; we need more data to help ensure that companies and countries make bigger reductions faster. That’s where the MethaneSAT satellite fits in: to provide global high-resolution coverage of methane emissions. Today, I donated to EDF to help launch that satellite.
