Google helps protect the environment

In celebration of the "earth day", Google announces its plan for environmental education in schools. Not suprisingly, the plan involves the use of its award wining "Google earth" software, allowing students to see the earth and help protect it.

From the Google blog:

Using Google Earth, teachers can fly their students around the world to talk to them about issues like climate change and how it has affected places like Glacier National Park, the Chesapeake Bay and Los Angeles. And they can introduce students to community initiatives across the country where volunteers are cleaning up their cities, planting trees and beautifying. Using Google Earth, teachers can show their students placemarks of the towns where outreach projects are taking place and students can get involved in cleaning up their own environment.
