Climate Change

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden has experienced that rarest view of Earth from space, afforded only to astronauts. He reflects on that perspective in his new blog post, "Protecting Planet Earth," as he outlines NASA's scientific research role in President Obama's new Climate Action Plan.

NASA satellites have already provided more than 40 years of Earth observations from space -- a critical, global record that has already proved crucial in helping scientists better understand our dynamic planet.
