'Then and Now' Pictures By NASA Showcase The Shocking Yet Dramatic Changes On Our Planet

We, as humans, have caused much pain to Mother Earth due to our reckless activities. The sudden climate change has become a global issue, the glaciers are melting, forests are shrinking, and the ozone layer is depleting. It's high time we must clear this misconception that the earth, the land, the air, and water are not what we've inherited from our ancestors, but it is a loan for our children. So, isn't it our duty to give them back all that we've got in the same conditions as it was handed over to us?The pictures in the article that I've compiled from Nasa's website are proof of how we as humans have changed the appearance of the Mother Earth. You can compare the images and think wisely.
