This looks like a nifty idea. Should be less biased than the eco-green
stuff floating around.
In a move it claims is "democratising and revolutionary", the UN
Environment Programme (Unep) has launched a network portal intended to
transform access to information about green issues.
The site uses capabilities Unep says were "previously limited to military
intelligence agencies". It allows users to create their own maps, and to
add facts and figures to amplify the information on display.
And soon it will allow users anywhere in the world to see what is happening
in their own immediate neighbourhood.
"If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and
crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures
to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."
