Fragile Earth: Views of a Changing World

Fragile Earth: Views of a Changing World

The Guardian shows some rather striking images from photographs and computer models that shows the 'before and after' of how both nature and humans are making an impact on the planet.

The images show the effect of deforestation in Bolivia and Madagascar, how dams change the surrounding landscapes in Turkey and how rising sea levels will affect Florida. But one of the most powerful images is probably the one that shows how Lake Chad, once one of the largest lakes in Africa, has shrink to 5% its former size due to a warmer climate.

The images comes from a newly released book called "Fragile Earth: Views of a Changing World".

Some other pictures worth checking out are "Our destructive impact on the planet" and "How Spain will be affected by climate change".
