In Colorado the mountain pine beetle has killed a large number of pine trees in the northern mountain areas. These dead trees increase the incidences of wildfires as well as contribute to climate change as they decay. It is estimated that the beetle kill has left behind a deforested area the size of Rhode Island. In these two images you can see the before and after difference caused by the beetle kill.

Rising temperatures are causing Siberia’s long-frozen ground, called permafrost, to thaw. Scientist believe the permafrost last melted 130,000 years ago, but the current rate of melting this time is unprecedented. The thawing could worsen global climate change. These two satellite images from 2010 and 2016 show the before and after of one specific area where sinkholes where prevalent.
