In the small West Virgina town of Sheperdstown, former oil and gas company geologist John Amos is using the same technologies used to find and extract natural resources to document the impact of that extraction on the environment.

SkyTruth, founded by Amos, is a nonprofit organization using remote sensing and digital mapping to create stunning images that expose the landscape disruption and habitat degradation caused by mining, oil and gas drilling, deforestation, fishing and other human activities.

Recently the Washington Post put together an interesting article and video on the organization that is well worth sharing here.

The video is below and here’s a link to the full article.
