Cool stuff with Google Earth

Map the Fallen - honor the more than 5,700 American and Coalition servicemen and women that have lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. A map for Google Earth that connects their stories.

I Love Mountains - End Mountaintop Removal Action & Resource Center. Enter your zip code and see your (power company's) connection to mountain top removal, a radical form of coal mining in which entire mountains are literally blown up. There is a Google Earth map that shows some of the connections between coal-fired power plants and the mountaintop removal mines that supply them with coal.
