Barry Rock, UNH Professor Emeritus in the Earth Systems ResearchCenter at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space spoke to these the following questions:  What do earth-orbiting satellites tell us about  the current and future impacts of global warming on our local landscape?  How is what’s happening today different from past climate changes?
