The beautiful new book Earth from Space by Yann Arthus-Bertrand features more than 150 breathtaking satellite photographs alongside interviews with scientists, activists, and other experts, which offer cutting-edge information on critical environmental and sociological issues, and suggest the many exciting, newly developed methods for using these images to predict and prevent problems. For example, satellite photographs allow us to monitor the evolution of vegetation around the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site, snow loss on Mount Kilimanjaro, and the health of penguin populations, to name a few.
