Climate Change is an important issue which needs to be addressed not just on World Environment Day, but on daily basis. It's saddening to see once dense forest now struggling to exist, just because we humans destroyed it for our selfish motives. NASA’s before and after images of these glaciers show us how vast the difference is between the once scenic glaciers and rivers, which now are losing its charm due to our carelessness.

1. Matterhorn Mountain in the Alps, on the border between Switzerland and Italy. August, 1960 — August, 2005




Once covered heavily with snow, Matterhorn mountain now has less snow as compared to 45 years ago.
