When we explore, we witness. When we witness, we become aware - the first step in changing. The topic of protecting and reducing the effects of climate change is increasingly on people's minds. Through this Google Earth layer (data added on top of the basic Earth database) created by Greenpeace, a greater awareness of the steps being taken to protect our planet are more accessible. By combining textual, photographic and video based information on a wide range of climate issue and organizing these geographically, Greenpeace have placed their expertise into the hands of millions of people worldwide who are free to explore in safety their blue planet. To explore this project, simply "Download this KML into Google Earth". Then click on each of the Greenpeace "Placemark" icons (geographical bookmarks) to reveal a description balloon containing a wealth of information and resources.
