'This new Timelapse feature provides a bird's eye view of nearly 4 decades of environmental transformation, allowing us to see how the climate emergency, a planetary crisis has unfolded since 1984. Using 24 million satellite images representing quadrillions of pixels compiled over  37 years (thanks in large part to NASA), TimeLapse is an interactive, 4-D experience that illustrates how certain areas of the planet have changed incredibly quickly. Watch how sea ice in Greenland has meltedcontributing to global sea level rise; how deforestation in the Amazon has intensified in the past 20 years; how the Aral Sea has dried up to a fraction of its size since the early 2000s; how decades of bushfires have impacted Yellabinna, Australia. You can watch skylines pop up seemingly overnight in Naypyitaw, Myanmar, and Dubai, UAE, alluding to the environmental costs of rapid urbanization.'
