    in the comments from XMETMANS blog site found this . He says
    “By the way, speaking of learning, early last year I discovered an excellent high resolution satellite tool that covers the globe and provides a variety of MODIS and now VIIRS imagery. It’s called NASA WorldView. The interface is fairly intuitive. Use the mouse roller to zoom in and out. Clicking on the little eye symbol by each active layer toggles it on or off which can be used to flicker images from different satellites like an animation. Also the arrow keys can be used to go backward or forward a day at a time to see daily sequential changes. You can also go back a year or two to compare annual or seasonal variations. It’s a very powerful satellite imagery tool. Here’s the link:

  2. Wireless technology will be the new tobacco regarding cancer if it keeps going down the road it going. Here’s one starting point, An American TV station can transmit 100,000 Watts of power per hour times 24 hours = 2400,000 watts of electrical energy transmitted into the atmosphere by just one transmitter. How many transmitters are there world wide all doing the same thing. How come we let the electronic industry abuse the atmosphere the way they do. They need to put in some infrastructure( wires or optical fibre)
    Here are some bad health effects .

    They knew RADAR created atmospheric heating when England lined it’s shores with antennas at the end of the first world war .
