Friday is Earth Day, the day when our climate anxiety peaks and we look about in disbelief at what we’ve done to the earth.

As a result, Google is commemorating the day with a visual reminder of our inadequacies, releasing a gloomy Earth Day Google Doodle that depicts the devastating effects of climate change.

The Google Doodle for April 22 features a collection of GIFs made from photographs of real places taken over several years. Each time-lapse GIF will be shown for a few hours throughout the day, giving you plenty of time to think about how we’ve ruined the world.

Though Google was apparently spoilt for choice when it came to discovering climate-change-affected landscapes, it thankfully limited itself to just four.

As a result, the Google Doodle for Earth Day 2022 will depict the glacier at Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro melting away from December 1986 to 2020; glacial retreat in Sermersooq, Greenland from December 2000 to 2020; shocking coral bleaching around the Great Barrier Reef’s Lizard Island from March 2016 to October 2017; and the destruction of the Harz Forests in Elend, Germany from December 1995 to 2020.

The majority of the images in the Google Doodle were acquired from Google Earth, although footage of coral bleaching in Australia was provided by The Ocean Agency, a non-profit conservation organization. On April 21, at 9 p.m. PDT, the Doodle will go live in the United States.

This year’s Google Doodle is noticeably bleaker than last year’s, which had a more upbeat, tree-planting tone. However, you can’t declare the case doesn’t warrant it. We must take urgent and drastic action to reverse climate change; else, the loss of natural wonders like this will become the least of our concerns.
