NASA recently released imagery showing the deforestation of America …in just 34 years.
I’m sure it’s not just me but doesn’t North America seem to have grown in the roughly thirty years between these photos? I’m a bit astounded that a landmass has gotten larger in size somehow.
I would also like to point out that there may well be a other factors associated with the brown vs green in these photos - such as when they were taken (i.e. Spring vs Autumn) rather than it being completely because of deforestation - though I don’t have any true context to go on.
