Seventy thousand years ago, our human ancestors were insignificant animals, just minding their own business in a corner of Africa with all the other animals. But now, few would disagree that humans dominate planet Earth; we've spread to every continent, and our actions determine the fate of other animals (and possibly Earth itself). How did we get from there to here? Historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests a surprising reason for the rise of humanit...

Help Improve Global Forest Watch

In February of last year Global Forest Watch was launched (http://goo.gl/265xQN), an online monitoring system created by the World Resources Institute, Google and a group of more than 40 partners that provides interactive maps that show global changes in forest cover.

In addition to many improvements to the platform over the past year, Global Forest Watch is asking for your feedback on how it can be further improved. Head over to the Global Forest Watch blog (linked below) to learn about some of the latest updates, and contribute ideas on how it can be made even more useful.
By Crystal Davis, Alyssa Barrett, and Sarah Alix Mann. Global Forest Watch is changing how people see forests. GFW launched nearly one year ago, captivating the world with interactive maps showing the startling disappearance of forests over time. Now anyone with an internet connection can use ...

Open Culture recently published an interesting report on the Global Forest Watch Site, which shows global deforestation in near real-time.

http://www.openculture.com/2014/03/new-google-powered-site-tracks-global-deforestation-in-near-real-time.html

With help from Google Earth Engine, the World Resources Institute launched Global Forest Watch, an online forest monitoring and alert system that allows individual computer users to watch forests around the world change in an almost real-time stream of imagery.
