Ahead of the Climate Change Convention in Copenhagen (a.k.a. COP15), Google Earth is launching a series of layers that allow users to look at possible future climate scenarios depending on our actions now. One new layer is a guided tour of potential climate change effects narrated by none other than Al Gore.
The other layers show climate projections, including temperature and precipation changes, in a low emissions scenario and a high emissions scenario. In the next few weeks, Google plans on adding layers that show solutions for dealing with these changes.
In addition to these new layers, Google has also launched their own YouTube channel for COP15. Users can submit questions and opinions, and the highest rated of those will be broadcast at the conference and during the COP15 CNN/YouTube debate in December.
