7 shocking photos showing what climate change has done to glaciers in 100 years

There is almost nothing left.

In the early twentieth century, the Arctic glaciers were huge fortresses that showed all the charm and mystery of the place. Unfortunately, after 100 years, all that was ended due to climate change, oil exploitation and human intervention, leaving only the memory of those imposing glaciers.


A Swedish photojournalist from Greenpeace named Christian Åslund toured what was once Norway's glaciers and took different images imitating those at the Norwegian Polar Institute. When he compared them he discovered everything that has caused the climate change. The differences are really shocking.


With this, the photographer aims to promote the care of the environment and counteract the effects of climate change, in addition to demonstrating against companies that extract oil in the place.
