The National Physics Laboratory in London has come up with a scheme to make satellite observations of the Earth’s surface more accurate and silence the naysayers who use discrepancies to argue against human involvement in global warming. The Truths satellite has a 99.999% perfect radiometer. Readings taken using this device can then be used to calibrate devices on other satellites when they pass over the same area. The sensitivity and resolution of the device also means that pollution can be tracked with pin point (well, tennis court, but that’s not bad from orbit) accuracy.
