Google Isn’t Always Evil

This is really cool:

Google is trying out one way of mapping climate change. It has outfitted a few of its Street View cars with special sensors to measure methane… the primary ingredient in natural gas. It’s part of a partnership between Google and the Environment Defense Fund that’s finding leaks in the thousands of miles of gas mains beneath streets in New York and other cities.
