Google Earth Map Now Highlighting Effects of Climate Change

Google-Earth-Climate-Change-Map Using peer-reviewed science and Google Earth technology, a new map shows what will happen if the global average temperature goes 4°C above the pre-industrial average.The Foreign Office and the Department of Energy and Climate Change in the UK launched this new, interactive map to help communicate climate science in the wake of the climategate non-scandal (well, scandal if we are talking about the fact that private emails were stolen and published on the internet). The map covers issues such as the effects of climate change on crop productivity and food production, water availability, sea-level rise, and carbon emissions.
