Environmentalists across the world are to be enlisted as armchair detectives to monitor satellite images of rainforests and report any illegal logging.
The images will be frequently updated and anyone with internet access will be able to make instant comparisons with historical images and spot destruction of rainforest almost as soon as it happens.
I have two questions.
1. Doesn't the owner of those lands get to decide what to do with them?
2. Why can't we get the same real-time image updates to keep an eye on the politicians?
