(via @NRDC) Guess what DOESN'T stay in Vegas: sprawl

This amazing video takes only 38 seconds to tell a powerful story. This is how NASA’s website sets it up: “Las Vegas has undergone a massive growth spurt. This video shows the outward expansion of Las Vegas as a false-color time lapse of data from all 40 years of Landsat satellite data. The large red areas are actually green space, mostly golf courses and city parks. The images become a lot sharper around 1984, when new instrument designs improved the ability to resolve smaller parcels of land.” View the video on NASA's site here . You can also view high-res versions of this and several related videos here . Move your cursor over the images for credit information. Kaid Benfield writes (almost) daily about community, development, and the environment. For more posts, see his blog's home page . Please also visit NRDC’s sustainable communities video channel .
