Sorry about that. Stack traces like these are mainly of use to
developers. I wasn't sure what sort of output you'd get when you ran
Google Earth from a terminal, but I've found that when things go wrong,
capturing output using script often helps with troubleshooting -- if
only to prove that it was my own fault in the first place. :)

Going through the stack trace, it looks like it's running into problems
with the graphics stack when trying to do 3D rendering, which confirms
that Jeremy Hansen told you. If you take his advice you'll probably
have a better experience.
