The sensors on board take one image for each band so
there is a slight temporal offset between the images taken. This offset is corrected for ground level so objects on the ground appear as if taken by a single camera at the same time. The parralax error introduced by the altitude of the plane leads to this visible offset

In summary:
- Exxon Mobile knew since at least the 70s about the potential harm caused by global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

- In the 80s, they concluded that global warming would actually be good for profits; the polar ice caps would melt, making it easier to get at Arctic oil reserves.

- They started to collaborate with other fossil fuel companies to knowingly lie about CO2 emissions and its effects, in order to stop any global coordinated efforts to to prevent climate change.

I am so fucking angry.

Oil companies, for decades, have been DELIBERATELY ACCELERATING global warming in order to MELT THE FUCKING MELT THE POLAR ICE CAPS so they can extract oil from the Arctic more easily!
