Submission + - CIA Teams Up With Scientists to Monitor Climate (inhabitat.com) 1

MikeChino writes: The CIA has just joined up with climate researchers to re-launch a data-sharing initiative that will use spy satellites and other CIA tools to help scientists figure out what climate change is doing to cloud cover, forests, deserts, and more.
