I want to tell you about a most impressive composite photograph
that has been published on the web by the U.S. National
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It shows the entire
surface of our Mother Earth as she appears at night from
satellite positions above.
This composite photograph, without the use of one word, has
taught me more about Global Warming, Conservation of Natural
Resources, and our Population Explosion than the all the words I
have read over the years. It has forever changed my perspective
of our Earth.
You can find this photograph on your browser at:
I think it is ironic that those of us who have access to this
photograph via our computers are perhaps the very people who
currently are contributing most to the situation you will see
I hope you enjoy the view and will share it and your thoughts
with your friends.

Seen this about a month ago, someone sent it to me at the office. It definitely displays the high-density population areas
