Today the world celebrates World Earth Day

Today, the world celebrates World Earth Day with the aim of spreading awareness and concern for the Earth's natural environment, an annual international celebration held in many countries of the world. Some countries celebrate Earth Week.

On this occasion, Google has changed its search engine image, also known as Doodle, to raise awareness of the dangers that are threatening the planet by humans.

Earth Day is a day of awareness and concern for Earth's natural environment. Founded by US Senator Gaylord Nelson as an educational environmentalist for the first time on April 22, 1970. Today is celebrated in more than 175 countries. Some countries call it Earth Week and celebrate it over a whole week.

The reason for Earth Day was in response to the 1969 oil spill off the coast of California, where more than 3 million gallons of oil spilled over 10,000 sea birds, dolphins, seals and sea lions. The annual event aims to raise awareness of environmental issues, with events around the world promoting recycling, pollution reduction and the care of the planet.

This year's Earth Day theme on Google aims to draw attention to the rapid global destruction that has resulted in a sharp decline in the number of plants and wildlife in the world. This decline is linked to human-induced phenomena, such as climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, overfishing, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides.
