The European Union is developing a digital clone of the Earth to help monitor and combat the causes of climate change globally.

The European Commission is starting the Destination Earth initiative, supported by an initial investment of 150 million euros ($167 million) until mid-2024, to create a digital simulation of the globe. The idea is that scientists and companies will be able to use it to help monitor and predict the human activity that’s causing temperatures to rise.
