A weatherman for the world

USATODAY.com article

"At the World Earth Summit in Brussels Wednesday, the nations are expected to launch a 10-year effort — spearheaded by the USA — to establish a global system that will be a weather watchdog — and much more.

"The 'Global Earth Observation System of Systems' will not only eyeball extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, but also will improve long-range forecasts, warn about earthquakes and disease outbreaks, spot forest fires and estimate the ecological effects of development and climate change."
