Google unveiled its new version of Google Earth, the first to map the world’s oceans, at a press conference today in San Francisco. On hand were some high-level Google executives like chief executive Eric Schmidt and senior vice president of search product and user experience, Marissa Mayer. Former Vice President Al Gore also spoke for a bit about how this new version of Google Earth can showcase some of the troubling climate changes our planet is undergoing. Then, musician Jimmy Buffett came up with more lighthearted fare.
