New NASA Space Observatory to Study Carbon Conundrums | NASA
NASA Announcement June 12, 2014

The title above, is also a link to the NASA Space Observatory webpage that hosts this story. Since I started talking about that "Carbon Reduction Thingy" a few days ago, I have been looking for items, and information to share. 

This is an amazing article by our friends at NASA Space Observatory, and there are a few highlights I pulled out of this article to highlight:

Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2): NASA's New Carbon Counter - YouTube.

#2 As I named this Observatory, is one of five that will be launched in 2104. 
“Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere plays a critical role in our planet's energy balance and is a key factor in understanding how our climate is changing,” said Michael Freilich, director of NASA’s Earth Science Division in Washington. “With the OCO-2 mission, NASA will be contributing an important new source of global observations to the scientific challenge of better understanding our Earth and its future."  (Freilich 2014)
