Coral reefs in peril as ocean environment is transformed


Planet Citizen, Bioneer and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio joins with Planet to launch an amazing ocean imaging, earth science project -- Reefscape.

Satellite Doves to Aid Coral Conservation
Planet API

The Reefscape project aims to improve our understanding of the condition of coral reefs worldwide, while simultaneously developing spectral libraries needed to advance the development of a new satellite mission.

To gather a more comprehensive understanding of the condition of global reef ecosystems, we need a way to assess and monitor them on a large geographic scale. New satellites, such as those from Planet (formerly Planet Labs), are, as of 2017, able to capture near-daily imagery of coral reefs worldwide. Planet’s high-resolution imagery of reef location provides us with an at-your-fingertips understanding of the extent of shallow, horizontally oriented reefs.

Mick Mulvaney, President Trump’s budget director:

“Regarding the question as to climate change, I think the President was fairly straightforward —

We’re not spending money on that anymore; we consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that.”

Pope Francis speaks of Climate, Politics, and Personal Responsibility

"It would be sad, and dare I say even catastrophic, were special interests to prevail over the common good and lead to manipulating information in order to protect their own plans and interests", the Catholic pontiff stated in his continuing explication of the Church's position.
"The Pope took particular aim at those who reject the science behind global warming..."

About Us

GreenPolicy360 provides green best practices, news and updates, and an online database which lists local/global policies and successful examples -- legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances/concepts -- of green values in practice. Our database is growing. We've experienced millions of page visits. Our Introduction Video explains how we started.

We are an eco-network, a system designed for online sharing, a distributive web of green best practices.

GreenPolicy360 was developed for use in all communities, local, national, international. GreenPolicy lets you know how other communities are dealing with many of the key public policy issues of yesterday, today and tomorrow. If you're working to craft similar green legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances/concepts for your local community, or you just want to get an idea of best practices that might be possible, you can use the models and templates here.

Use our online platform of best practices, build on what has worked in other communities and locations, create waves of change, multiply and keep on keeping on.

"Think and act global and local!"
