    Climate Change Image Highlighted in Google Doodle for Earth Day 2022

    Google on Friday released a new doodle to put pressure on talks over impact of climate change. The new Google doodle shows real time-lapse images from Google Earth Timelapse, highlighting the impact of climate change across four different locales around the planet.

    The doodle was launched on Earth Day, which is an annual event held on April 22 to show support for environmental protection. The event was first held on April 22 in 1970, and now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org.

    This year's theme for Earth Day is 'Invest In Our Planet'.

    "Acting now and together to live more sustainably is necessary to avoid the worst effects of climate change," Google wrote on its blog.

    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.
