Planet

An atlas of environmental change compiled by the United Nations reveals some of the dramatic transformations that are occurring to our planet. The atlas compares and contrasts satellite images taken over the past few decades with contemporary ones. Highlighted in vivid detail, the striking images show the make-over wrought in some corners of our planet by deforestation, urbanization and climate change.

Images of comparisons that will startle you!(when the images appear, you can click for more images at the bottom of your screen - scroll down if necessary)
