Visualizing the alarming decline of glaciers

Nothing is more effective to visualize the alarming retreat of glaciers than a series of comparisons, confronting the current state of Arctic glaciers with photos taken only 100 years ago. Some shocking comparisons by photographer Christian Åslund, which support the campaign #MyClimateAction. An action initiated by National Geographic to protest against the drilling in the Arctic by the Norwegian oil companies. We had already talked about the retreat of glaciers with a similar series: The impressive retreat of glaciers in Alaska in only 100 years.
