The Earth has made giant geological shifts throughout the lifespan of our planet, but what we sometimes fail to realize is that even during human history, major changes in weather, environment, climate, and more have changed before our eyes.

We’ve found some differences between the same places and you won’t believe how different some of these places look!


This the Pedersen Glacier in Alaska. The left depicts the location during the summer, 1917, while the new photo showcases the summer, 2005. Notice the massive changes in snow level during the same time period.


Deforestation has taken a lot of forests in South America, and the forests of Brazil look drastically different than they did in the past. Look at the shocking difference. Forests in Rondonia, Brazil. June 1975 — August 2009.
