Google Earth Illustrating Global Warming has teamed up with the California Energy Commission to bring layers illustrating global warming to Google Earth. SFist writes, “Word of the new features first broke when Former Vice President Al Gore introduced them on YouTube in September” and now, some days ago “during a press conference at Treasure Island, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced the new application. Three years ago at the very same spot, Schwarzenegger signed California’s landmark global warming law requiring the state to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Treasure Island, along with SFO and Google’s Mountain View headquarters, could all be fully underwater by 2100.”

[Thanks Singularity!]
