Google Earth adds environmental content


You can now, with the click of a mouse, add layers to your Google Earth showing 100 areas of the world which have experienced significant man-made depredations (such as sub-Saharan Africa and the British Columbian rainforests). With the before-and-after, you can get a really good feel for just how much obnoxiousness we've commited over the last thirty years. Then you can cheer yourself up by virtually visiting Jane Goodall's chimpanzees in Tanzania's Gombe reserve. [GT]
