EARTH THEN AND NOW
Amazing Images of Our Changing World
A melting glacier, an expanding desert, an encroaching cityscape, a natural disaster—each stark visual comparison tells a compelling story. Examples: aerial photos of Las Vegas in 1970 and today; Brazil’s rainforest before and after logging; the Mekong river before and after Agent Orange; and Aceh, Sumatra, before and after the 2004 tsunami. The captioned photos are grouped according to six themes: urbanization, land transformation, environmental change, war and conflict, leisure and culture, and forces of nature. A world map shows where the photos fit in global context.
