Google Earth's new feature highlights climate change

 A new update has arrived on Google Earth. Users will be able to see how climate change, urbanization, and forestry have changed the world over the past four decades with the newly added Timelapse feature.

The timelaps were created using 24 million man-made satellite images, eight hundred recorded videos, and interactive guides. The feature allows users to view time intervals in any region of the world.

The entire project uses data from the US space agency NASA, the US Geological Survey's Landsat program, and the European Union's Copernicus program.

Climate change has resulted in increased precipitation, droughts, droughts, heatwaves, and storms, and global average temperatures have reached new highs.

A Reuters report says the Google Earth timelapse tool highlights coastal areas, ever-growing urban areas, and changes in farmland. It also represents glaciers, forests, and declining rivers.

One of these videos shows the forests nearby Bolivia disappearing in villages and farms. In another, the main reason for the rise of the Amazon rainforest. In the third video, the glacier is melting again.

Scientists have warned that if global greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, extreme weather conditions and natural disasters will increase.
