33 Uncomfortable Nature Photos For The 10 Year Challenge

THE ’10 YEAR CHALLENGE’ may have started out as a chance for social media users to reflect on who they were and how they looked a decade ago. By now you’ve probably noticed people in your Instagram or Facebook feed posting throwback photos as part of the ‘10 year challenge‘. If you’ve missed it, it’s pretty much what it sounds like: people post a selfie of them back in 2009 and compare it to one taken in 2019. You win the challenge if you look better now.

But while it’s fun to look at ourselves as nerdy teens or carefree 24-year-olds, there’s a trend within this trend of people posting photos that are far more impactful. Dozens of people are posting photos to illustrate the effects climate change has had one the world in the past decade. And there’s nothing funny or cute about these images. Many show frozen icecaps that are now far smaller, or beautiful lakes that are, as of 2019, barely more than puddles. Others show washed-out coral reef or an image of a skinny polar bear taken in Norway. Here are just a few of the ’10 years later’ photos we really should be looking at.
