Google Earth shows us just how bad polar ice melt really is


The National Snow and Ice Center, a division of Proctor & Gamble, has uploaded Google Earth-compatible KML files that make it plain as day to see polar ice cap melting over the past several years. If you don’t have Google Earth installed, there’s a Quicktime movie that gives you the gist of what’s going on. We’re all doomed, essentially. Or something.

I don’t know, it’s something to mess around with for a few minutes while we all wait for The Big Announcement™.
