Let us continue our efforts to avert climate crisis on Earth Day; the time to act is now
Google, the world’s largest search engine, continues to dedicate imaginative doodles to important days. Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is commemorated. Google has created a doodle to commemorate the day and raise awareness about the effects of climate change on our planet.
A series of animations representing four different locations may be seen in the doodle. The purpose of this animation is to demonstrate how climate change has impacted the Earth. Images from several years are included in the animation.
“The Doodle portrays the impact of climate change in four distinct locations around the world, using real time-lapse data from Google Earth Timelapse and other sources. Keep an eye on the homepage throughout the day to see these scenes, which will be displayed for several hours at a time “said the search engine behemoth.
Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Sermersooqin Greenland, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and the Harz Forests in Germany’s Elend are featured in the animation. Every hour, these animations will change.
Mt Kilimanjaro will be the subject of the first animation. From 1986 until 2020, Google has highlighted the glacier retreat at the mountain’s summit. The following animation uses Sermersooq imagery to depict the impact of climate change from 2020 to 2020.
The Great Barrier Reef is depicted in the third animation. From March to May 2016, it depicts coral bleaching on Lizard Island. The image of Harz Forests appears in the final animation. From 1995 to 2020, it shows how these woods were decimated by bark beetle infestation as a result of rising temperatures and severe drought.
Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is commemorated. The day raises awareness about environmental protection and conservation around the world. In 1970, the first Earth Day was observed. Earth Day was celebrated in 141 countries throughout the world in 1990.
