Arctic glaciers were the most mysterious and undiscovered wonders of nature in the early 1900s. The glaciers have become a haunting testament to the global warming effects over 100 years of research, exploration, and exploitation later.

Swedish photojournalist who works with Greenpeace, Christian Åslund gathered some early photos of glaciers ice in Svalbard, Norway from the Norwegian Polar Institute. Then he juxtaposed them next to his own photos of the same locations from 2002. You will see the differences in these before and after photos. These photos are used to promote #MyClimateAction, a National Geographic campaign encouraging discussion about climate change and as a protest against Norwegian oil companies drilling in the melting ice in the Arctic region.

See the differences of the photos below. You also can sign Save The Arctic’s petition against Arctic oil here, in order to stop the devastating consequences of global warming.
