SSPI Launches Climate Sense, a Six-Week Online Exploration of Satellite’s Critical Role in Understanding and Adapting to a Changing Climate

(January 10, 2022 – New York City) – Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) today announced the beginning of Climate Sense, a six-week campaign featuring videos, podcasts, live online conversations and a new issue of SSPI’s digital magazine, The Orbiter. The campaign explores the unique power of satellite to reveal hidden contributors to climate change, its continuing acceleration and how effectively nations are keeping their carbon commitments.

The campaign began on January 10 with a podcast interview with NASA Earth Science Division Director Dr. Karen St. Germain and GSOA Secretary General Aarti Holla-Maini. SSPI featured videos on sustainability in SSPI’s Better Satellite World series on the same day. New content will be published weekly at www.sspi.org/climatesense.


About Climate Sense
Climate change is not a problem for tomorrow. It is happening before our eyes, whatever we think of its causes. To solve that problem, we must first understand it. And that is where satellite makes the critical difference. It is the only technology that provides perspective on the entire planet, from trends affecting entire oceans to changes in one square kilometer of land. Over six consecutive weeks, the campaign will examine critical climate challenges and the satellite technologies and services that can deepen our understanding and point the way to solutions.

“After too many decades, climate change now has the world’s attention,” said executive director Robert Bell. “Less well understood is the essential role that satellite technology and services play in understanding its sources and revealing its progress. The Climate Sense campaign aims to change that by putting the contributions of space and satellite companies front and center.”

You can learn more about the Climate Sense campaign on SSPI’s website.
