Cover of: Earth then and now | Fred Pearce

About the Book

" A collection of 250 stunning images showing locations around the world as they were and as they are now. Each pair of photographs or satellite images has been selected to tell a thought-provoking story-of a melting glacier, an ever-rising cityscape, or a volcanic eruption-presenting a stark, visual comparison that is sometimes breathtaking, sometimes shocking, but always fascinating. Concise captions explain the facts and leave us to draw our own conclusions about the Earth Then And Now, and to meditate on the earth to come"--P. [4] of cover.
