Climate Sense Campaign

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, we will examine critical climate challenges and the satellite technologies and services that can deepen our understanding and point the way to solutions. MORE

Podcast

Every Monday during the Climate Sense campaign, you’ll get to listen to a new podcast in the This Planet’s on Fire series, featuring experts on a wide variety of climate topics.

This Planet’s on Fire, Episode 3: Agriculture – How at Risk Are We?

In this third episode of This Planet’s on Fire, we hear from Wade Barnes, co-founder and CEO of Farmers Edge; Prateep Basu, CEO of SatSure (a Better Satellite World Award recipient in 2020); and Sanjay Wagle, co-founder and Managing Director of The Lightsmith Group. Wade, Prateep and Sanjay join SSPI’s Lou Zacharilla to talk about the major risks in agriculture today, business models and innovations that use satellite-based information to transform agricultural practices and the impacts of climate change on agriculture and investment. The podcast series is sponsored by SatSure.

New York Space Business Roundtable: Satellites Boosting Sustainable Technologies

The New York Space Business Roundtable contributes to SSPI's ongoing, multi-platform series Climate Sense by inquiring if there is a meaningful business case for sustainable technologies in space and satellite. Speakers include: Paul Gloyer, President, Gloyer-Taylor Labs LLC; Douglas Helmuth, Remote Sensing Scientist and Former Principal Investigator, Lockheed Martin SSC; and Sanjay J. Wagle, Managing Director, The Lightsmith Group.

Videos

The Better Satellite World campaign shows the world why our industry, though often invisible, is indispensable to modern life, through powerful stories and videos that depict space and satellite technologies contributing to the economy, society and sustainability of planet Earth. Several of our Better Satellite World videos focus on the topic of climate and how the satellite industry is mustering to provide vital data in an ever-changing world.

About the Climate Sense Campaign

Climate change is not a problem for tomorrow. It is happening before our eyes, whatever we think of its causes. Rising temperatures affect everything from agriculture to livability. Extreme weather brings more property damage and loss of life. Drought-striken forests blaze into fire storms that rage across millions of square miles or kilometers.

Limiting the world’s rising temperature and adapting to unavoidable change will take the concerted action of nations, companies and citizens. That will place burdens on all of us – but sustainability has the potential to be the greatest growth industry in history. Around the world, innovators are developing a thousand potential solutions to climate challenges. They are making alternative energy more affordable and powerful every year. They are pioneering ways to stop the release of carbon from pipelines, industrial processes and transportation. They are creating technologies to pull carbon from the air and markets to put it to safe and productive use. When the world is ready for serious action, serious solutions will be ready for the world.

To solve a problem, however, we must first fully 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 the next six weeks, we will examine critical climate change challenges and satellite technologies and services that deepen our understanding and point the way to solutions.
