Google introduces Timelapse to Google Earth


Timelapse videos include watching the expansion of Dubai, the difference the Surui people have made through their protection of the Amazon rainforest, the change of the glaciers in Greenland, among others.


The tours have been divided based on five themes: Forest change, urban growth, warming temperatures, sources of energy, and fragile beauty.


Additionally, Google announced it will provide funding to vaccine alliance Gavi for 250,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to help countries in need, as well as commit AU$2.5 million in grant funding to Partners in Health, Stop the Spread, and Team Rubicon, which can be used towards efforts like pop-vaccination sites in the Black, Latino, and rural communities in the United States.


Apple has partnered with Conservation International and Goldman Sachs to establish a $200 million initiative -- called the Restore Fund -- to remove carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.


Under the initiative, the companies aim to remove at least 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide annually from the atmosphere, equivalent to the amount of fuel used by over 200,000 passenger vehicles, while also develop a viable financial model to invest in forest restoration programs.


Our hope is that others share our goals and contribute their resources to support and protect critical ecosystems," Apple environment, police, and social initiatives vice president Lisa Jackson said.
