Review of thirty years of satellite images: Earth is getting greener

“From this remarkable 30-year archive of satellite imagery, we thus see evidence of a greening trend. Monitoring the evolution of this will be an important task for the next 30 years of earth observation.” This is the conclusion of this peer reviewed study by 5 scientists who reviewed and analyzed 30 years of NASA satellite images.

Whatever climate changes are happening, and whatever the causes of those changes, our planet is getting greener.
