Google Doodle Marks Earth Day 2022 With Stark Images Of The Effects Of Climate Change

Google

The Google doodle on April 2022 is showing the real-time lapse images of the melting glaciers at Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, retreating snow cover in Sermersooq in Greenland, deforestation of Harz Forests in Germany, and coral bleaching on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef to remind its users about the effects of climate change.

Google is marking Earth Day 2022 with time-lapse satellite images of the effects of climate change. The images are sourced from Google Earth and The Ocean Agency. Google will keep showing these four images on its homepage throughout the day.

Earth Day 2022

Google said in a note that the Google Doodle shows the impact of climate change across four different locales around the planet. To mark Earth Day 2022, the image of the glacial retreat at the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania between December 1986 and 2020 is shown to the users. It is also showing the images of the glacial melt in Sermersooq, Greenland, between December 2000 and 2020.

The other two real-time images include the result of a coral bleaching event on the Great Barrier Reef near Lizard Island in Australia between March 2016 and October 2017, and the deforestation of the Harz forests in Elend, Germany, between December 1995 and 2020.

Effects of the climate change

The Great Barrier Reef went through its sixth mass bleaching event in March. Climate change is the biggest threat to the future of coral reefs around the world. The Great Barrier Reef is particularly exposed to damaging cyclones, flooding and storms. The loss of marine life can also have a devastating impact on ecosystems.

There is also serious concern that widespread deforestation could lead to a significant decline in rainfall. The deforestation of the Harz forests in Germany can also affect the lifestyle of the people. With these four images, Google wants to remind its users about humanity’s impact on the climate and environment.
