GoogleEarth and the Environment

GoogleEarth and the Environment

Google Earth’s uses just keep expending and increasing. It is now being used to show people the top 100 endangered species, where they live, and what threats they are facing right now. By using the high powered satellites people are able to just click and zoom to see the species and its habitat. This will allow people to become more aware of the fact that endangered species are there and that the actions of humans could further endanger them. The other interesting thing is deforestation. People are not too concerned about it, but according to him, you are able to clearly see borders between countries due to the fact of deforestation, which shows that we may be cutting down too many trees if boundaries are able to become clear between countries.
