Explore Climate Change With Google Earth

The United Nations has teamed up with Google Earth to upload their "Atlas of Our Changing World". Google Earth users can now:

...zoom in and fly over virtual environmental "hotspots" like the explosion of shrimp farms on Thailand's west coast, China's massive Three Gorges Dam or the vanishing snows of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

A new use for one of my favorite computer toys.

Uh, isn't that Chinese dam going to be producing electricity without fossil fuels? That is a GREEN project, no?

And isn't farming shrimp better than depleting the ocean's fisheries, leaving them better able to repopulate the sea on their own naturally?

And don't forget to thank the oil industry for saving the whales.

Is this the same UN that saved all the people in Rawanda? The same UN that ran the Oil-for-Food Scam. The same UN that protected the fleeing people of Darfur by beating and raping them.
Boy are we in trouble, they will probably want us to send money to make things better . . . sure glad they are looking out for me!!!

Typical neocon UN bashing. Move on, nothing to see here.

The un-corrupt one.

Ya right.

Just another socialist scheme to suck money out of productive western democratic countries.

No wonder the Lieberals suck UN dick

Seeing as how you invoked the proper name of a mainstream religion deity, we must infer that you are a right-wing Christian extremist bigot and your comments are therefore irrelevant.
