Google releases more tours to highlight climate change

A few weeks ago, Google released a series of Google Earth tours that highlighted some climate change issues, in preparation for the COP15 meetings in Copenhagen later this year.
Today, Google has released a few more tours. The new tours all deal with deforestation, and show ways to help protect forests from further deforestation in the future.
