Google Time Lapse Showcases Climate Change

Fire Island

Google has released a stunning a new time-lapse video that uses satellite imagery to show the evolution of major destinations around the world over the last three decades.

The images show both how certain areas of the world have exploded in terms of development. They also show the devastating effect of climate change on our earth.

Via The Guardian:

We can see, in these timelapse satellite videos, how the Earth is being torn apart by human acts. We can also see, in timelapse videos of Arctic ice, great glaciers melt before our eyes. Yet, are human beings capable of assimilating such global perspectives or is our consciousness tragically limited to a pre-space age, even pre-Copernican mentality? Are people only capable of acting on immediate, personal and local concerns, even though images from space can show us the bigger picture?
