Reading about Google Earth Outreach now …

Reading about Google Earth Outreach now being available in Africa. I’d love to see a visualisation of the impact that Africa has on the world. African emigrants, African resources (diamonds, gold, uranium, platinum, zinc, wood, food etc.), outbound money, pollution and so on. I’d like to see a historical view too, showing the impact of the slave trade on different countries around the world and the rape and pillage of Africa by the colonial powers. All in a slick animated and interactive Google Earth format. Big arrows spearing out from the Congo to Belgium and from Egypt to Europe and so on. Can I get a grant for that please?
