Earth Day 1970 - 2018: Sea Changes

Earth Day 1970 - 2018: Sea Changes
The first Earth Day in 1970 marked a new public consciousness of the ecological perils caused by--and threatening--humanity. Today, it’s celebrated in nearly every country. AMNH has developed an annual Earth Day video to highlight environmental changes since 1970. The playful infographic-style animation brings decades of data from NASA, NOAA and other trusted scientific organizations into a common visual language, illustrating progress in some areas, but dangerous trends in others.
