Earth – Then & Now, NASA Investigation

Earth is changing drastically. Blame it to the global warming or human actions or the natural phenomena’s over the years. These terms like global warming and climate changes are used for the rise in average earth’s surface temperature over the centuries. This has resulted in warmer oceans, melting of ice glaciers, loss of habitats for many species of animals, etc. Of course humans can’t be blamed for everything that has been happening over the years. Even natural hazards like floods and fires have changed the face of earth multiple times in all this time, some ranging from days and some ranging decades. The remaining are the effect of urbanization including cutting down of forests, leveling of lands and yes, we humans are to be blamed for that.

The gallery below features “Then and Now” photograph comparisons of different locations on earth and how it has changed over the years. There have been some great developments over the years but we are just focusing on those images that shock us humans to our very core.

We will try to explain briefly about each and every photograph you see below. We have not ranked any photographs though, as we believe every photograph comparison effects us equally. (You may click the photograph to view in large scale).

The concept behind these photographs comparisons of different locations on earth, is not to prove the “End is Near” theories. It is to prove that “It’s Time To Act” theories. So we all should join hands and do something to give our future generations, a better and a definite tomorrow.

Do share these images with your friends and family to spread the climate change awareness.
