In one of the most creative videos on World Earth Day 2022, Google has created a time-lapse video that shows the impact of climate change across the planet over the decades. The time-lapse video on Earth Day has been created through a compilation of imagery that was collected by Google Earth.
Google through today’s doodle is addressing the pressing challenge of climate change through its doodle. “Using real time-lapse imagery from Google Earth Timelapse and other sources, the Doodle shows the impact of climate change across four different locales around our planet. Stay tuned throughout the day to view these scenes, each remaining on the homepage for several hours at a time,” Google said.
The first Doodle shows real imagery of a glacier retreat at the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa’s Tanzania. The images were taken each December annually from 1986 to 2020.
The second image on Google’s Doodle page shows a glacier retreat in Sermersooq in Greenland which was taken every December from 2000 to 2020.
The time-lapse has been created using a compilation of images, which shows several different locations across Earth, including coral reefs, glaciers, that were collected by Google Earth.
Earth Day marks the birth anniversary of the modern environmental movement in 1970.
Today, it has become the biggest secular observance in the world. Over a billion people mark Earth Day as the day to bring about wide-ranging policy changes.
The theme of Earth Day 2022 is “Invest In Our Planet”.
