Post subject:  Timelapse images of earth in last 30 years- NASA and Google

"These Timelapse pictures tell the pretty and not-so-pretty story of a finite planet and how its residents are treating it - razing even as we build, destroying even as we preserve."

In the video, you can see the Alberta Oil Sands expand (at 1:50), Dubai and Shanghai turn into mega-cities (at 2:10), the Amazon Rainforest disappear (at 2:25-2:40), and glaciers melt due to climate change (at 2:45).

You can see major agricultural water projects designed in the desert (at 3:00), artificial cities built in the ocean (at 3:10) and the housing boom in Las Vegas (at 3:17) as Lake Mead (which keeps the entire region hydrated) shrinks.
