Google’s Earth Day celebration reminds us of state of ailing planet

Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year since 1970. Year on year, the celebration is getting more somber. This year, internet giant Google reminds us of the increasingly fragile state of the planet in four new Doodles featuring images of environmental destruction across the globe. 

In time-lapse sequences consisting of Google Earth satellite images taken over several decades, the Earth Day Doodles reveal the scale of glacier retreat on the summit of Tanzania’s iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, as well as that covering parts of Greenland‘s southern Sermersooq region.
