Google Timelapse Shows How Earth Changes in 30 Years
  • Google Satellite Timelapses show Mirror to Humanity regarding Destruction Wrought

Google satellite timelapse images have truly shown the mirror to humanity regarding the level of destruction and devastation wrought by it on the fragile and delicate planet.

The image of the big blue marble (that would be the planet earth) is transfixed in our imaginations. That picture taken from the vantage point of outer space shows how our home is like a spaceship that is very vulnerable and prone to damage by the beings who live on it.

Especially as the dominant species, we humans are responsible for most of the recklessness that goes on in the name of progress throughout the world.

The first pics of earth were taken in 1947. Then in 1968, the image of a blue gem engulfed by the darkness of space was something which was truly beautiful and awe-inspiring in its dimensions.

Today thanks to Google satellites that have shown timelapses, we can get a pretty good idea of how the earth’s image has changed in duration.

Over 30 years of changes and transformations are clearly seen when you compare before and after pics of the earth via this methodology. It is truly sad to view a natural desert become a complex for human use, a lake evaporate and big city life extend itself all over the globe like cancer cells.

History seems to be the anomaly in this whole picture. Most of prehistory was pretty much an ever-moving normal flow of events. Then suddenly with the rise of agriculture and especially industrialization, things took on a turn for the worst.

The earth became one huge stinking rotting stench-pile of human waste products. The Arctic ice could also be clearly seen melting before our very eyes like an ice cube on a hot pavement during the month of June.

The problem seems to be the self-interest of human beings. They couldn’t see past the end of their nose.

People like President Obama came as healing agents for the environment only to have all their hard work destroyed in the blink of an eye by the likes of Donald Trump.

According to Guardian, Donald Trump has claimed that climate change is nothing but a big fat fraud perpetrated by the Chinese government in order to compete with America’s industrial might.

The satellite images brought home to ordinary humans are clear proof of the pollution and wastage that they have inflicted on the earth. Donald Trump’s fixed stance on climate change is a form of denial of the most extreme kind. Just by calling the whole thing a hoax, the problem will not be solved.
