Funded by the California Energy Commission and Google.org, the Stockholm Environment Institute has developed a Web site using the Google Earth platform to display an interactive tour on climate change. Setting the standard for displaying and transferring climate change information, the Cal-Adapt prototype application allows users to explore the risks of global warming in California and help make better-informed localized adaptation decisions.
