Atlas

http://atlasbycollins.com/

Atlas contains a series of interactive themed globes, broken down by subject areas: the app helps users put their world in context. Globe topics, such as environment, energy, population, communications and politics, are visualized by overlaying colour-coded layers of rich information on top of continents and countries. This is not a navigation app like Apple Maps or Google maps. This is an atlas, giving an overview of the world.

Now that green is in every headline and on every store shelf (bamboo hair gel, anyone?), Grist is the one site you can count on to help you make sense of it all.

Google Green

http://www.google.com/green

At Google, we've worked hard to minimize the environmental impact of our services. For instance, to provide users with nonstop YouTube for three weeks, Google uses less energy than it takes to do a single load of laundry. If you add in our renewable energy and offsets, our footprint is zero. And we continue to find new ways to reduce our impact even further.
