World Earth Day 2022, i.e. Earth Day, is celebrated every 22 April. Its purpose is to make people aware of the environment and save the animals and plants present on our earth. On this day, people take a pledge about how they can make the environment better. On this occasion, Google has made a special doodle, in which an attempt has been made to explain how climate change is affecting our lives.
Let us tell you that there has been a massive jump in the temperature of the earth in the last few years. Glaciers are melting. At the same time, the climate of many big cities has deteriorated. Air pollution is also increasing. Google has shown the impact of climate change in four different places on Earth through its doodles.
Google has created its doodle through timelapse imagery. This imagery shows many parts of our Earth, including coral reefs, glaciers and greenery. An attempt has been made to tell through doodles that they have become significantly less for a few decades. When you click on Google’s doodle, your attention will be made aware of many aspects related to this issue, focusing on climate change.
Like, as what is the cause of climate change. What is its effect on the general population? Google has said that the changing temperature with time is also changing the weather patterns. Due to this, the balance of nature is disturbed. It has been said that the real reason behind climate change is greenhouse gas emissions.
Due to this, the ozone layer is being damaged, which we have to deal with as soon as possible because this is the shield that protects us from the scorching heat of the sun and harmful elements.

Photos of four places in Doodle
You can see pictures of the continuous melting of glaciers on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in the doodle. These photos were taken every December from 1986 to 2020, shown through timelapse. The second imagery is from Semmersook in Greenland. At the same time the third is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The fourth picture shows the Harz forests in Germany’s land, which have been destroyed due to rising temperatures.
How did Earth Day start?
In 1969, Julian König first introduced people to the term Earth Day. It was founded in 1970 by US Senator Gerald Nelson on 22 April. Since then, it has been celebrated every year all over the world. This year’s theme is Invest in our planet. This theme encourages us to invest in this planet unitedly to protect family, health, and livelihood.
