Thank so much for Google, It added many historical photos to let us know how the Earth changed these years, And why we should do something for it and for ourselves.
the Aral Sea as it looked in 1973, before the onset of desertification.
The Aral Sea, 2008: Here’s how the Aral Sea looks today. Scientists estimate that over the last four decades, the sea’s surface area has shrunk by approximately 60%, and its volume by 80%.
Larsen Ice Shelf, 2007:By 2007, the melting of ice is obvious, particularly in the area near the tip of the peninsula, where an ice shelf approximately the size of Rhode Island has disintegrated.
We can also see how the earth chaned in other ways:
