Google highlights special days and occasions with Doodles in which it changes the Google logo with a creative image or animation. To remind people about the impact of climate change on this Earth Day, April 22, Google has created a series of animations of four locations to showcase how climate change has impacted our planet. Every year, Earth Day (April 22) is a reminder to protect the planet and make it sustainable for our future generation.
On April 22, when you open Google Search homepage on Chrome internet browser, you will be greeted with a timelapse animation. There are four of these animations and every hour Google will change them. These animations or GIFs will showcase the impact of climate change over a period of time.
“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,” said Google in an official blog post.
As far as the animations are concerned, Google will showcase real imagery from Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa highlighting the glacier retreat at the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro from December 1986 to December 2020.https://d-87955677797763039.ampproject.net/2203281422000/frame.htmlRELATED N
