New Environment Category

After writing my recent blog entry “View Glaciers Melting in Google Earth” I came to the conclusion it is time to add a category to a frequent topic covered here at GEB. Using Google Earth quickly makes you realize how big our planet is, but also how much we humans are changing the face of the planet. If you often read the GE forums and blogs you begin to realize there are more people turning to GE to show what’s happening to the environment. And, I think this is a good thing. So, I’ve added the Environment Category in the right sidebar. Check it out to see some of the interesting things being done with GE to highlight our environment.
