Deep Sea Dive and Witness Global Warming With "Google Ocean"

algore3small It’s not often you find a topic that brings together former Vice President Al Gore, Jimmy “Margaritaville” Buffett and hundreds of Googlers together in one building. But this afternoon the launch of the 5.0 version of Google Earth, which includes new satellite and mapping info from the seabeds of the world’s oceans, provided just such an occasion.

Google Earth’s new ocean data can help educate the public on how climate change is affecting our planet, and Gore — whom Google CEO Eric Schmidt introduced as the person who will go down in history as having saved the Earth — said he hoped it will drive home the reality of global warming. Gore often speaks at events on climate change and has worked as a senior adviser to Google.
