Satellites being used to fight illegal logging

Clearings - clues to where illegal logging might be happening - can only be seen from above, but aircraft patrols are expensive.

By Thomas Moore, Science Correspondent

Satellites are being used as "CCTV in the sky" to protect vulnerable rainforests against illegal logging.

Operators working in mission control - a converted church in Edinburgh - are scanning photos taken by satellites for tree felling in the Guatemalan jungle.

They are able to relay coordinates to police rangers on the ground, who can take action far more quickly than previously possible.

Forests cover a third of Guatemala's land area, but every year around 1% of the trees are cleared.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
