Earthrise

21Jun12

Ahead of the Rio+20 summit, I have been working on a new tool that looks at investment in green energy in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Climatescope. Had me crazy, but it is now live and it kicks! Definitely worth playing around with.

But what I came across, and what had me breathless for a while, was this 1968 photograph of the earth. Imagine this, you are an astronaut, you step out of your Apollo 8 in the morning, to get some fresh air (or a smoke, or so) and then you see this, the earth rising from the dark, magically appearing in front of your eyes. A beauty. Our princess. So peaceful.

That is the moment you take out your, er, iPhone and snap the shot pictured below, best watched in HD – click on it – and make sure you instagram it, tagging it #earthrise #space #RioPlus20 #SaveTheEarth.
