7 Then & Now Pics Of Arctic Glaciers Show The Damage Of 100 Years Of Climate Change

The haunting evidence of warming effects!

Climate change is affecting every nook and cranny of Planet Earth in numerous ways, the most stunning evidence of our warming world is the captured photos of the shrinking glaciers as well as the disappearance of snow and ice.

The melting of the glaciers, an occurrence that increased in the 20th century is undeniably leaving our planet iceless and human activities are the main culprit. Most glaciers have thinned and scientists are most concerned about the dramatic changes.

The Arctic glaciers in the early 90s had been recognized as nature’s most mysterious and indeed undiscovered wonders, but with over 100 years of exploitation, the glaciers are now haunting evidence of the global warming effects. Giving more insight, a photojournalist is using his photo series to promote #MyClimateAction.

Being a National Geographic awareness aimed at urging discussions about climate change, photographer Christian Aslund equally aims at protesting against Norwegian oil companies drilling in the Arctic region. The Swedish-based, who works with Greenpeace did gather some early from the Norwegian Polar Institute and the striking difference in the then vs. now photos are downright unbelievable.

Nevertheless, the increasing temperature of the Earth has, without doubt, been responsible for melting glaciers and presently, the speed at which climate change is progressing might render glaciers extinct in record time. Ocean warming and Carbon Dioxide emissions remain great contributors to glacial melting and for as long as population increases, they both are inevitable.
