  • Climate change could subject an additional 600 million people to malnutrition by 2080.
  • We’re on track to see global temperatures rise up to 4°C by the end of the century.
  • Ocean levels on Earth have risen an average of three inches in the last 23 years; and could swell an estimated three feet in the next century.
  • The warming that we’ve seen in the last 30 years is due to human-made greenhouse gases.

Sounds familiar yet unreal? While these facts are truly shocking, some of us just refuse to accept the reality. Well, Climate Change Is Depressingly Robust.

The US Geological Survey is using Repeat Photography to document the progression of global warming and visually convey that climate change is real and happening. The striking photos are created by pairing historic images, from the 1800s to the early 1900s, with contemporary photos of the same landscapes to give global warming a face and make climate change a relevant issue to viewers. The project covers Montana’s Glacier National Park, as well as public parks and forests in Alaska.

While Russia claims global warming is nothing more than a western fraud, America offers evidence that global warming is not only ongoing – but is having real, and drastic effects on the world around us. Take a look at these 20 before-and-after images that reveal the impact of climate change – the results are shocking, and speak for themselves:

Daniel Fagre, a Research Ecologist at USGS, says Glacier National Park’s namesake glaciers have receded rapidly since the Park’s establishment in 1910, primarily due to long-term changes in regional and global climate.

“In the last century, the five warmest years have occurred in the last 8 years – in this order: 2005, 1998, 2002, 2003, and 2004. This warming is ongoing and the loss of the Park’s glaciers continues, with the park’s glaciers predicted to disappear by 2030.”

  1. Hey, umh, you need to check on the sources of the pictures what season they were taken, it seems like most of them were taken during summer… 😛

    And the north pole ice is building up again…

    • Also why are all the photos from at least 3 years ago? Weather patterns change. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. Watch local news weather it may have been 90degrees in November let’s just say in 1912. Al Gore started all this meanwhile mining for uranium?

    • Not true. Artic permanent ice is disappearing faster than ever. The NASA photos are being used to perpetuate a lie about climate change. They merely were showing the growth of ice between September and March in 2015 The coldest winter on record. That ice growth was only seasonal. I can’t believe people are STILL arguing whether or not climate change is real. I’m not at all sure about accuracy of the photos above but that is beside the point The only scientist on this planet that claim climate change is not happening, are on the payroll of petroleum companies.

      • Man is very arrogant to think that he has the power to change the world. All you sound like pussies, you bitch all day long but I’m doesn’t China dwarf out pollution? Explain how you think being a punk ass green-Eco-friendly dog shit eating bitch is going to stop them? Are you gonna eat more dog shit per annum?

      • All of these pictures and comments are moot. Anybody who has done any real research into this issue would have found out years ago that when the IPCC was founded they sent out invitations to all of the climate scientists in the world to contribute their research findings in their forst ever climate report. Most of the scientists replied that they would contribute. Their names were added to the list of contributors to the report, but were never actually contacted for their numbers. It was all a fraud from the start.

    • You need to understand that it’s not the warming air that we need to be worried about, it’s the fact that our seas are warming we should be talking about. The north pole may be building ice on top but it is melting extremely fast under.

      • That’s exactly right, there’s way more to it than just the air. People that say there’s nothing we can do and won’t bother researching or anything really. Watch Cowspiracy and see just one small change we can make as the “human race”
        Did you know that in 2006, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization issued a report stating that the livestock business generates more greenhouse gas emissions than all forms of transportation combined? Did you know that 51 percent (or more) of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture?

    • What i find un-believable is the fact that anyone is listening to the climate deniers campaigns ??? when clearly these glazers have not melted in millions of years and NOW in one generation they are gone .
      How the f*ck can a whole nation be so thick ?
      Can’t they use their own eyes ?
      I mean, to say that summer and winter photos in a stable climate would lose entire mountains ranges of landscapes of massive glaziers in a few months and then form ice again in winter to replace it .. Is this what you are saying ? is beyond stupid . I mean they have f*ckin GONE in just over 50 years . ….. If Americans are that thick , i think they deserve to die , they have no function here on earth and people like you mate should not be having children , bad gens

      P.S. I realise you have no idea about geography we laugh out here at your ignorance of not knowing where countries are that your Government are destroying with your taxes , that are being bombed to hell . Anyway i digress.
      Let me explain the world is NOT flat , the sun does not orbit the earth and the earth is more than 10,000 years old and there are two Poles the North and the South .
      The North pole is losing ice proven by these photos . And under the permafrost there are lakes of billions of tons of methane that is leaking and burping out over the whole landscape the most power of greenhouses gasses is escaping and is at risk of bursting out all at once . Killing everyone on earth . People living there now can drill holes in the thin ice and light the methane .
      Apparently there is a reaction in the South Pole where the temperature is unstable and doing the opposite to the North Pole that is losing ice twice as fast as predicted .
      If you want to learn from the World’s Leading Expert what is really happening , which i suggest you do because right now you are listening to corporate whores by the sound of it : Here is the link :
      Our time is running out – The Arctic sea ice is going!
      Exclusive interview with Professor Peter Wadhams, leading Arctic scientist Cambridge University – Filmed by Judy Sole: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=peter+wadhams+time+is+running+out

    • For all those ignorant people out there, climate change is a real fact, it is happening whether you like it or not – WE ARE THE PROBLEM. Not the planet itself, because while you are discussing whether it’s real or not, there are droughts all over the world, and before our greedy race set foot on that land there was a forest full of life. Think about it, you have eyes don’t you see that if we don’t change the way we use electricity, resources and stop being so stupid and high stuck up, this planet won’t survive a another thousand years, your children, grand children will have to deal with this problem but then it will be too late.

      A lot of people here who are scared and you can see it by their comments. Whether these pictures are 100% real or not has nothing to say, because there is some truth in it. Stop being such ignorant people and take everything for granted. Jesus won’t save you if that’s what you believe. Make a change or shut your stupid mouths. Have some respect for this planet that has given you a fucking life, this planet is not made for JUST US, it’s made for everybody and while you decide whether climate change is real or not there are thousands of people dying of drought right now, animals too.

      people are really ignorant, that’s for sure.

  2. Great photoshop work and selective photo composition. Not to deny GW but it is amazing what a very slight change of angle can convey to the uneducated.

  3. I call bullshit, particularly the very first images of the north pole. 32 years between the two images, and yet the parts of alaska, the northern parts of Europe and Asia all look identical, and yet the middle seems to be drastically different. Seems like a bad photoshop job to me. I can’t speak to the other images, but that example seems pure bull.

  4. How about Global Warming on MARS!

    MARS icecaps were melting too!! It’s a galactical phase has nothing to do with carbox dioxide.

  5. I’m not denying that greenhouse gasses are bad but the earth has gone through climate cycles for millions of years. Check out the ice age and periods of warmth. It’s all cyclical, but hey let’s redistribute more wealth by adding a carbon tax and imposing b.s. rules.

  6. Government manipulation of the atmosphere and global farms involving livestock have more impact on this planet than every man woman and child.

  7. The first image is a computer generated simulation of the effects of global warming. It’s not a picture, so no shit it looks doctored.

  8. The “The San Blas archipelago in Panama, 2002 and 2014” picture can’t be real. If sea levels had risen as much as the bogus picture implies we would be seeing that in the news and visits to coast lines all over the world.

    This is either Anonymous being really, really stupid, or disinformation. Either one raises serious questions about their credibility. I think the Anonymous ppl tasked with FB posts are doing that because they don’t know the first thing about hacking, they’re probably hired because of nepotism. If the hackers were this lame they would ALL be in prison.

  9. YAY, lets mix winter photos with Summer photos to try to prove a point, because people are dumb and we are anonymous. Go hack a brain and post real shit!

  10. 5/6 people on the planet need to be taken out. We are overpopulated every season deer’s are killed off but people are killing our planet and I hope the great leaders move forward with the master plan soon. Pheasants most of you will parish.

    • Lake Oroville doesn’t look like that. California was in a drought, lost some water, it started to rain again….and the lake is filled back up now. The global warming must have stopped. Lol

  11. I see most commentors have been drinking the kool-aid. Look at the glaciers. There are no summer and winter levels of glaciers.
    The planet is getting warmer and we are in trouble. It will take a massive co-ordinated effort to prepare for and possibly turn back climate change. It would take the re-tack of industry in particular to really get us moving in the opposite direction. When business learns that there is more money to be made protecting our planet, not destroying her, only then will we gain the power to reverse the trend.

    • ummmm yeah were in trouble thats fur damn sure but the tempature is not the trouble. one world order, the pope, obama the clintons the bush family rothchilds and bilderburg group….thats your fucking problem with the world 100% of it right there rid the earth of those famlies involved in the avove stated and all the problems we are faced with today will be gone. and a new set of problems will be put in place.

  12. haha, why the Grinnell Glacier in Montana in 1926 has absolutely the same picture like Melting Muir Glacier, Alaska, 1882? 😀 😀 😀 And shoult I believe the other pictures now?

    • sry, I have somehow wrongly viewed the page, the first one should have been the 1880s and 2005: Alaskan Muir Glacier and Inlet, but still, why the first one has 1882 and the other one 1880? It´s the same picture!

  13. I thought Anonymous are more intelligent and have some more knowledge about world. First image is a computer simulation of arctic ice data, not a picture, I doubt we have any satellite at that hight with camera, besides there would be clouds. The pictures of glaciers are okay, but all with water scarcity connection have in fact more in common with excess farming than climate change. Besides your informations are outdated IPCC predictions, which are conservative and often reality proves to exceed their worst case scenarios. If you want to educate people about climate change you should post about arctic methane clathrates release, and warming lag associated with oceans warming, those are most important threats. First because when arctic ocean will warm enough, and we know it is warming very fast, there is a high possibility of large methane amounts release, and methane is more than 100 times stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Second because if we had stopped carbon dioxide emissions completely our planet would still be getting warmer for decades to come, and what we do is increase carbon dioxide emissions every year. At the moment we are not on track for 4 degree increase, we are on track for runaway greenhouse effect. Fortunately the effects of global warming should soon speed up, allowing us to see how bad the situation really is, and hopefully we will have enough time to avoid the catastrophe.

  14. I wonder what the cave man said when the ice started to melt.
    Thank god the ice age is over and that the earth is starting to warm.

  15. no one talks about those damn ships that go to the ice each year, massive ice breaker ships to send idiots to watch the penguins.
    Breaking the ice is like leaving the freezer door open.
    they used to only go to certain locations since the ice was thick, now they have massive 8 hull ice breaker ships and they crack the ice therefore the ice moves away with current, and before it gets a chance to freeze up the ship is back.
    might take an entire year to get the ice back and the ships return every 3 months.
    Just like sea levels rising directly related to the constant ship building, they build more and more ships just like putting a second person in the bath, the water level rises.

  16. I don’t think that climate change is a hoax, but this collection of photos is a definite hoax. The Aral S3ea is the most extreme example: the drying of the Aral Sea has been caused by the use of nearly all of the water in the river that feeds it. Historically the Aral Sea has varied dramatically in size depending on rainfall and use.

    Something that whoever put this together neglected to mention is that the Little Ice Age ended around 1900 (the ending date varies depending on who is giving it and why). During the Little Ice Age places that had been clear od glaciers during the Medieval Warm Period iced up. For example, there were places in the Alps where melting glaciers uncovered mines with tools piled by the entrances, ready for the next year’s work. Similarly, glaciers in Alaska have grown and shrunk over the millennia.

    If the evidence for anthropogenic climate change were good, then the various backers of that theory wouldn’t have had to alter data to make it fit their preference.

  17. This is all rubbish! Only idiots believe in climate change. To think that the human race has had such an affect that we can change the climate is proposterous! We are still experiencing the end of the last ice age. It’s all just weather patterns folks!

    Open your eyes….

  18. It’s called climate change. This literaly means a change in climate, some places will get warmer, some colder, more storms, etc. Everyone with their eyes open can see this is happening. Rather than denying the science, go take a science course so u may understand the information better.

  19. Since 1967, the Feather River’s origin at the confluence of its four forks has been submerged under the waters of Lake Oroville, created by the construction of Oroville Dam in 1967. At about 770 feet (230 m) high, it is the tallest dam in the United States and wields nearly complete control over the flow of the Feather River by creating one of the largest reservoirs in California. The dam was built with the purpose of preventing the frequent floods that often inundated this part of the Sacramento Valley, and to store water for agricultural uses downstream during the dry season. The dam is the principal feature for the California State Water Project, storing water for more than 23 million people and 750,000 acres (300,000 ha) of farmland in Central and Southern California.
    Pretty sure we can find explanation for all kinds of things if we look for it.

  20. “We are Anonymous”??? Either Anonymous has been hijacked or you are stupid to think people would fall for this ridiculous propaganda guff!

  21. as long as I know (based on Al Jazeera documentary) Aral sea were not disappeared because of climate change than because of government project.

  22. For all those ignorant people out there, climate change is a real fact, it is happening whether you like it or not – WE ARE THE PROBLEM. Not the planet itself, because while you are discussing whether it’s real or not, there are droughts all over the world, and before our greedy race set foot on that land there was a forest full of life.

Have some respect for this planet that has given you a fucking life, this planet is not made for JUST US, it’s made for everybody and while you decide whether climate change is real or not there are thousands of people dying of drought right now, animals too.

    people are really ignorant, that’s for sure.

    • the climate changed just the same long before “we” were ever here dumb ass. the shit was changing sense the beginning of this planets life. so no shit climate change is a real thing. it was a real thing long before mankind and guess what its gonna be here much longer than mankind as well. so go freak out some more be sure to stop using power dont drive etc. that way we can all be safe right? news flash tht aint gonna make you anywhere close to safe

  23. Carbondioxide (CO2) is our byproduct of us breathing Oxygen (O2), but it comes from many other places too. But it’s amplifying the greenhouse effect so everything gets hotter. But at the same time, plants consume carbondioxide and give out oxygen. They’re saying the earth is getting greener because plants have more to “eat” now. Trees are growing faster, the greenery is spreading wider. More greenery means less carbondioxide and more oxygen, so the temperature should fall back down again eventually. It’s pretty facinating how the world works and just pretty much repairs itself.

    This is why I doubt that global warming is going to exterminate everyone.
    Besides, how many believed or were unsure if the world was gonna end in 2012 because of some super old school mayan calendar? It’s not like they were gonna write down the calendar for an eternity beyond their own extinction. Sure, the water may be rising and falling, but it’s supposed to. Who are we to say what the water level should be? How long have we been here and how long has the earth been here? Yeah…

  24. you guys over at anonhq are posting more and more fake dumb ass shit every day. anymore majority of the shit you guys post is outdated news or just information that has been made up by main stream media somewhere to form there opinion of reality in the general public’s mind or what they want reality to become. you fake ass pieces of shit should have a job for all of you with the federal government by now with how you look for false information to post rather than go out and find the truth. If you have not realized that every single thing on this planet is continuously changing and simply never stops then id suggest pulling your head out of your ass and shoot yourself because your to fucking stupid for the rest of mankind. look at all the worlds history has the planet always been this exact way??? FUCKKKKK NOOOO you ignornt rejects. over hundreds and thousands of years this very same fucking planet your all freaking out about global warming etc hs completly froze and then thawed completly more than once im sure so for the planet to very very slowly through a period of time increase and decrease in average daily tempature is in every mother fucking way NORMAL. fucking losers. how about post some more dumb shit to freak out all the simple minded dumb fucks out there so someone can make billions of global warming. yeah theres a great idea worthless fucking cunts!!!
