These 10 Terrifying Photos of Earth’s Climate Change Will Scare the Hell Out of You!

The ‘Mind The Earth’ project is the creation of architect and urban planner Kasper Brejnholt Bak and writer Morten Søndergaard. Using Google Earth View, the duo are aiming to highlight how climate change is affecting our planet, showing us the world from a perspective we don’t usually see in our day to day lives.

Over the last few decades urbanization and globalization have altered our natural landscapes significantly, and Google Earth view maps are a great way to track these changes. Using screenshots from the past and present, Brejnholt and Søndergaard are able to present to us elements we can’t see from ground level.
