New Google Earth feature shows climate change impacts over decades

Google Earth now has a new feature that shows how the world has changed over time.

According to Cnet, the Timelapse feature is the most significant innovation added to Google Earth in the last five years.

"I can see climate change with my own eyes," said Rebecca Moore, head of Google Earth, adding that one of the new feature's goals is to investigate the effects of climate change, forest fires, and deforestation.

Google created the new feature in collaboration with NASA, the US Geological Survey, and the European Union's Copernicus program. Timelapse was created using 24 million satellite images taken between 1984 and 2020.
