So you’re interested in saving the world, huh? Think your ideas on conservation and alternative energy are the next best thing, am I right? No, don’t tell me. I’m sure I’ve heard it all before. You’ve probably read through blogs, the science textbooks, and listened on pins and needles to every word that Al Gore ever uttered, and yet somehow you’ve arrived at this very page. It’s by no coincidence that you’ve been pointed in our direction. You my friend, yes I’m talking to you sitting in that comfortable first-world chair, are one of the chosen few to learn about a fascinating software that can help fulfill your wildest dreams, help you earn a fortune, and win world peace. I bet you’re on the end of your chair now! No? You didn’t even scoot forward an inch? Okay, honesty hour. None of the aforementioned items are actually part of this “secret” software. I know, I know. Stop beating around the bush and cut to the chase. Well, come a little closer and I’ll tell you what I’m talking about…
Huh?! What is a “Google Earth” and how can it help me with my research? And THAT, my sweet, is the magic question. In the pages of this blog, you’ll find the answers which you seek. Perhaps you have an interest in the marine life found within our vast oceans. Maybe the perilous situation surrounding the depleting rainforests tickles your fancy. Or, if none of this is suitable for your palate, a walk through the latest forms of alternative energy should hit the spot. If you have any interest in conservation, then at least one of these pages should already be loading in a new window on your browser. Each one describes a growing problem in our generation and offers a friendly and fresh perspective on the matter. When put in terms that the average person could understand, we hope that you at least learn a bit about the challenges that we as a generation face. Now don’t just sit on this page; go and enlighten yourself!
