You Still Think Climate Change Is A Hoax These 20 Before-And-After Photos Will Leave You Speechless!

  • Climate change could subject an additional 600 million people to malnutrition by 2080.
  • We’re on track to see global temperatures rise up to 4°C by the end of the century.
  • Ocean levels on Earth have risen an average of three inches in the last 23 years; and could swell an estimated three feet in the next century.
  • The warming that we’ve seen in the last 30 years is due to human-made greenhouse gases.

Sounds familiar yet unreal? While these facts are truly shocking, some of us just refuse to accept the reality. Well, Climate Change Is Depressingly Robust.

The US Geological Survey is using Repeat Photography to document the progression of global warming and visually convey that climate change is real and happening. The striking photos are created by pairing historic images, from the 1800s to the early 1900s, with contemporary photos of the same landscapes to give global warming a face and make climate change a relevant issue to viewers. The project covers Montana’s Glacier National Park, as well as public parks and forests in Alaska.

While Russia claims global warming is nothing more than a western fraud, (so does this scientist) America offers evidence that global warming is not only ongoing – but is having real, and drastic effects on the world around us. Take a look at these 20 before-and-after images that reveal the impact of climate change – the results are shocking, and speak for themselves:

Daniel Fagre, a Research Ecologist at USGS, says Glacier National Park’s namesake glaciers have receded rapidly since the Park’s establishment in 1910, primarily due to long-term changes in regional and global climate.

“In the last century, the five warmest years have occurred in the last 8 years – in this order: 2005, 1998, 2002, 2003, and 2004. This warming is ongoing and the loss of the Park’s glaciers continues, with the park’s glaciers predicted to disappear by 2030.”

So who shall we trust now, America or Russia?!

  1. Don't use the Aral sea for this argumentation (and don't use it twice, while you're at it). The shrinking of the Aral sea is purely a consequence of the massive draining of the two main rivers feeding it. It was done for extensive irrigation of cotton fields in the nearby areas. I am not against this post. I'd just appreciate it if argumentation for climate change remained objective and factual.
