Through text, illustrations, photographs, and pairs of satellite images spanning many decades, this book depicts and describes humanity’s past and present impact on select locations worldwide up through the early 2000s. As editor, I worked closely with experts from several countries to create a publication that would serve as a visually compelling early warning against further environmental change, and as a basis for directing policy decisions and individual actions aimed at sustaining the Earth and promoting the well-being of its inhabitants. Published by the United Nations Environment Programme in conjunction with NASA, the U.S Geological Survey, and the University of Maryland.
