Forget Earth as a pale blue marble, or perhaps a water planet, decades of satellite observations show Earth is actually dominated by clouds.

Two-thirds of Earth is covered in clouds
Yes, with cross country flights over N. America this has been really noticeable over the past five years. Does anyone know anymore details about the cloud cover numbers, especially the trend?
From that data, in addition to May-June 2015 assuming they collected it, has there been an increase in cloud cover on this hemisphere from the first 5 years starting July 2002 to the cloud cover of the current past five years (5 years starting July 2011)?
It now seems cloudier than I remember the 90s or 80s to be. But maybe it's poor observation or tricks of the mind, or local changes only.
