NASA recently released imagery showing the deforestation of America …in just 34 years.
We are killing the Earth
so apparently North America grows in about twice in size as well
that’s weird i don’t remember Florida being dried up it seemed fine three seconds ago when i looked out the window
huh. canada’s a desert now. Whelp, time to go inform the Canadians that instead of harsh winters they have to deal with scorching summers and arid temperatures
hey where’d the rockies go? I could’ve sworn that we had a mountain range over there.
also did NASA have HD, color pictures in space in 1978? gosh I musta missed that memo
also. did you check NASA’s website to see if they said anything about this? Hm…nope, doesn’t look like it. I wonder where this picture could’ve come from
The “green” pic is in fact a NASA photo, but from 2001 over the course of a few months. The “deforested” one is from January 2012, and is a true representation. First pic was edited to be greener than the original, but they are both legit NASA photos. The statements behind them just are false. One was taken in Winter, and the other in Summer. That alone could account for the differences.
Also, depending on distance, and amount of zoom, properties of the same object can be skewed. With nothing next to these photos for scale we assume they are recorded from the same distance, when they really aren’t. Being closer with a wide angle lens, and being far away with a huge telescopic lens can skew proportions very much. The Earth may look like it is being recorded from the same vantage point, but with the only reference of scale being Earth to edge of frame, the continents could look any varying size from one photo to the next.
ugh, I’ll have to fix the hi res photos later. -_-
