Earth is constantly changing. Some changes are a natural part of the climate system but a large majority of the drastic change we have seen in the last 50 years falls directly on humans.
NASA Earth Observatory has recently released a collection of World of Change photos that highlight how drastically Earth’s geography has change over the last few decades due to man. Climate change is often a topic that is avoided in conversation due to how it has been politicized but we need to address it as it is. A problem that needs to be handled now.If you need proof, then look no further than satellite imagery from recent decades.
